Coming Soon: Better Analytics For Simple:Press

Coming Soon_ Analytics Plugin for Simple_Press

We’ve been working on making data from Simple:Press easier to visualize and more useful at a glance. Perhaps the best way to provide a flavor for what’s coming is to show you this:

We’ll be providing exactly 12 analytical charts, each of which can be customized. Take a look at this screenshot which shows the extensive customization options that will be available for each chart:

Chart Types

For each chart, you’ll be able to select a chart type – there are 11 chart types available:

  • Line
  • Column
  • Bar
  • Pie
  • Spline
  • Scatter
  • Pyramid
  • Funnel
  • Waterfall
  • Doughnut
  • Area

The 12 Analytical Charts

As mentioned above, we’ll be providing exactly one dozen pre-built charts. These are as follows:

Additional Features

In addition to the major features listed above, you’ll be able to:

  • Specify which charts are visible on the dashboard
  • View a different set of charts in a separate FORUM->ANALYTICS area
  • Determine whether a chart should take up a full width in the FORUM->ANALYTICS area or half width
  • Select the order in which charts will appear in the FORUM->ANALYTICS area
  • Specify which admins can view and configure the charts
  • For charts the require a date range, specify custom date ranges or pre-select from one of the pre-configured ranges (24 hours, 7 days, 30 days, 90 days, 1 year)

Sample Charts

Here are screen shots of some the chart types – the same chart is shown (Total post count by forum) but with a different chart type.

Requirements

This new version will require Version 6.0.7 or later of Simple:Press. Once it becomes available you will be able to download from your account area on our Website.

We’re hoping this is ready sometime in the next 30-60 days.
