By default Acrolinx provides seven Analytics Dashboards. Each dashboard offers several charts and tables to equip you with a powerful analysis tool. You’re able to filter and drill-down your results for detailed analysis.
You might have different types of content and different projects that you check with Acrolinx. Naturally you would like to analyze these separately. In analytics, you’re able to create different Content Groups. Content Groups let you create logical collections of your content, so you can then view and compare aggregated metrics by Content Group. You can define your Content Group using one or more criteria, such as department or language. For example, you could group all the content that's published to your blog and then view the Content Quality Dashboard to look at how your blog content develops over time. For more information on Content Groups and how you set and configure them, see the article Content Groups .
If you want analysis tools that are shaped according to your specifications, you can add customized dashboards that you've created in JReport. For more information and further steps see the article Custom-Dashboards .

- The start date in the time range filter is the same as in the Parameter Values dialog you can open on the left side of the dashboard. You can change the parameter value to include more historical data.
- You can adjust the appearance of every chart. A window opens with a right click in the chart field and you select to change the style, the way the category is sorted, the chart type, and the legend.
- Note that the time range filter you set in the dashboard doesn’t apply to the detailed table views. You can add filter when you open the dialog box on the left.
