Announcing tyGraph for Atlas!

We are excited to announce tyGraph for Atlas. tyGraph for Atlas is a simplified experience dedicated to perspective that matter to Intranet Owners using the Atlas product. For more information please visit our Atlas product guide.

tyGraph for Atlas Report Overview : Support 

Improved Hub Mapping Logic

Front loaded hub site mapping logic in page query. Before if there were pages that hadn't been visited in some time the reports would show the last known Hub for the page. Now tyGraph will consider more recent data about a sites hub mapping then apply that down to all pages within the site rather than for each page individually.

Updated Demo Data

Improved demo data to give more intuitive examples of Search, click events, and user growth.

All New Accessible Theme

We are happy to announce tyGraph Pages and Atlas experiences are now WCAG AA Compliant. The first thing you'll notice is the theme has more contrast and is easier to read. These new layout include darker fonts, larger text, better color contrast, and support for mac devices. We hope this leads to better experiences viewing our reports for all ranges of abilities. 

Known Issues

On the "Site Audience" page, the "List These Users" visual in custom saved reports may break. Please refer to this article for details on how to fix this.

We now enhanced this detection to be based on the user's identity regardless of their device, session, or browser cache.

New Features

Custom Columns Generally Available

Back to top

In November 2021 we soft launched custom column support for Valo and Clear People pages. This month we have opened up the reports so that you can now filter to Custom Columns as well as their content. 

We are excited to the options this new capability will bring and look forward to adding more reports that take advantage of this new capability.

New Page Viewers Experience - Content Overview

Back to top

We've added a new button experience on the Content Overview Page under the Unique Page Viewers card. Now you can click on this card to explore details on the very users who made those views.

On the right edge of the visual you can change the totals to aggregate by Organization Hierarchy (Active Directory), Location, or to a user.

New Peak Viewers Grid Visual - Content Overview

Back to top 

You can now click the calendar icon on the content overview to see peak days and hours with the most unique page viewers. Many users love seeing the overall peak in viewers by hour or day of the week, this allows you to see the intersection of those points in more detail.

November 2021

New Features

Improved Click Tracking

Back to top 

We have greatly improved our click tracking to include more page elements and better labels that describe the element the user clicked on. This includes clicks on the Atlas Mega Menu, Atlas Launchpad, Site Navigation, Global Navigation, Hubsite Site Navigation, app bar links, and app bar navigation.

New Dataset Filters

Back to top 

Our Dataset filters previously allowed you to restrict the hub, sites, or select the timezone for the entire report. Now you can Filter the dataset to only return on News Articles. This is great for communications reports that focus on your news capability without the clutter of all your other content in the reports.

New Measures

Back to top 

We have added some new measures to the reports.

  • Unique Users Clicking - A unique count of users clicking on a site/page/element etc. This helps base your click counting in a more understandable denomination. Counting click events can be limiting because of high variance among users (Some click once some hundreds of times). By reducing to unique users clicking its much easier to understand your actual click traffic to a user.
  • Published Pages - We modified this calculation to better represent published pages.

New Properties

Back to top 

These properties are now in the data model and can be used to build visuals, slice, or filter data.

  • User properties - City, Province/State, Country, Department, Job Title, Office Location, Preferred Language, Usage Location
  • OS/Browser Hierarchy - Added Client Type under Client Type Group. This will allow you to separate user sessions based on if they were from Teams, Mobile, or Desktop.
  • Page properties - Atlas Template ,Atlas Version, Page First Published Date, Page First Published Time
  • Custom Columns - We are happy to announce the initial launch of custom columns ,this will be limited only to Valo and Clear People deployments.
