Interana Docs


The Interana Tutorials are for users who are new to Interana or new to Interana 3. These tasks introduce you to the user interface, walk through creating and modifying queries and flows, and describe how to analyze and share the results.

You can perform this series of tasks sequentially to familiarize yourself with using Interana, or you can jump directly to a specific task you need help completing.

  • Start working with queries and panels
    Create a panel, create and modify a query, and create event and actor properties.
    Pages: 4
    • Create a board and add a panel
      Once you're familiar with any boards or queries in your workspace when you first log into Interana, you'll want to create your own custom board. This article walks you through that process.
    • Modify a query
      This article demonstrates modifying a query from Explore view and from a panel, starting with the query example from Create a board and add a panel.
    • Create an event property
      You can use event properties in queries to summarize, group by, and filter on reusable expressions that can be direct references to physical data columns, references to values derived from lookups, or logical expressions evaluating multiple physical columns. This article describes how to define a new event property.
    • Create an actor property
      An actor is the "who or what" that is performing an event. An actor can be a user, physical object (such as a device), digital object (like a subreddit), or a bot.
  • Work with flows
    Create, analyze, and modify a flow.
    Pages: 6
    • Create a flow
      A flow is a visual representation of a path of actions taken by an actor.
    • Analyze a flow
      This article demonstrates the ways you can drill into a flow to analyze the results on a granular level.
    • Modify a flow to explore actor behavior
      Modify a flow and analyze user engagement that ends with conversion, or navigating away from the site.
    • Create a flow property
      When you create a flow, you can choose from a default set of properties. You can also create custom flow properties. Adding custom properties to a flow is similar to running ad hoc queries.
    • Analyze user sessions with flows
      This article explains how you can use flows to explore the details of user sessions, such as the number of comments each user makes, how often they make a purchase or perform other conversions, or how long they stay engaged on your site.
    • Analyze paths to user conversion
      To better understand your customers, you can analyze the steps they take leading up to a major conversion, such as signing up for a service, creating a profile, or making a purchase.
  • Work with queries
    Calculate a ratio of two measures.
    Pages: 1
    • Determine a ratio
      This article demonstrates how to construct a query using two measures, then how to determine the ratio between the two measures.
  • Manage objects and queries
    Personalize your workspace by controlling the display of objects you've created or that have been shared with you, inspect query history, and manage objects.
    Pages: 4
    • Change the visibility of properties
      Manage your workspace by changing the display of properties that you've created or that have been shared with you.
    • Manage properties
      After your property lists become extensive, you'll still want to be able to find the properties you need quickly. This article shows you how to search (filter) for properties, as well as how to delete obsolete properties.
    • View query history
      Interana preserves the session query history, on a per-user basis. This is helpful when you want to return to a query from the current browser session, or return to a query you ran during an earlier session. Interana lets you view past queries with data from when the queries were originally run. You can use these queries as jumping off points from which to create new queries.
    • Next steps
      After completing the Interana 3 Beginners Guide, you can continue to enhance your Interana skills and deepen your expertise in exploring data for behavioral analytics. The following resources provide a broad base for continued learning.
