4.5: Identify Statistical Trends

One of the benefits of using Invision Community as your community platform is that you control and own your data.

There are several ways to review this data. One of which is via the Admin Control Panel which offers a suite of statistic views which helps to convert the raw data into something easily understood.

However, it's not always easy to determine trends and community sentiment from these singular views.

Invision Community 4.5 adds two new interactive views for user and activity statistics.

This new 'overview' view not only shows you a snapshot of your community but also allows you to compare time periods. In the video, you can see that I select different date ranges, such as "three months". This shows you the data of that time period, and also compares it against the previous three months.

In this example, you can clearly see that we have 50% more registrations and 33% more contributors compared to the previous three month period.

Likewise, in this example, you can clearly see that we have a 1200% increase in reactions given with a clear breakdown of the type of reaction given to help understand community sentiment.

These interactive displays automatically update, so if you are so inclined, you could leave the statistic pages open and watch as the data changes live.

We hope that you find these new views useful in identifying trends and help to inform strategic decisions within your community.

Is this info available to extract via the API? I want to plug it into our external analytics tool.

The information is mostly available via The API. We're just parsing and crunching the same data we've always had, but in a different way.
