The Sources dashboard analyzes the sources added to people profile's in Element451. Explore funnel counts, conversions, and student dimensions by source type, name, and segment.
Accessing the Dashboard
The Sources dashboard can be found via the Insights sub-menu. The Insights module can be accessed from the Data + Automations dropdown in the top navigation.
The Sources dashboard displays funnel tables, a section to explore specific funnel stages and student dimensions, and a UTM table.
Data can be viewed by source properties and student dimensions
Source Type: Filter by one or more source types. These types are Custom, App, Event, and Web.
Source Name: Filter by one or more source names.
Source Segment: Filter by one or more source segments.
Student Term: Filter by one or more active student terms.
Student Major: Filter by one or more active student majors.
Student Type: Filter by one or more active student types.
People Segment: Filter by a specific calculated segment of students created in your Element451 instance.
Data on the Sources dashboard is organized by an overview tab, an explorer tab—to analyze sources by different dimensions—and a web sources tab—to analyze the UTM and URL variables collected on web sources.

Troubleshooting & FAQ
Why is there no data?
There are a variety of reasons an Insights report is blank. Try the following quick fixes:
Reset the report. Visualizations may be filtering the report. Check the date controls. If the date is too far in the past, it may pre-date your activity in Element451.
Check what fields are being used. For example, if your institution is not adding dates to the sources, some counts may not appear correctly.
If data is still missing, there may be issues with your data in Element. Check out this guide for data cleanup.
Why are the source counts off from what I see in my Element451 Instance?
Because this dashboard is filtering off of dates, you may need to adjust the date filter further back than the default. If you are still noticing differences, your data may be missing source dates or have invalid dates (having a year prior to 1400). Following the clean up guide, you can create a segment that looks for sources with a timestamp of 0 to 1400 years in the past to target the group that needs to be cleaned up.
What is the People Segment filter and how do I use it?
The Sources dashboard can only be filtered by certain dimensions by default. The people segment filter is a great way to filter the report by dimensions that matter to you. Create a segment in the People module, and set it as a calculated segment. Please allow 24 hours for new calculated segments to appear and filter correctly in Insights. More on using segments and Insights together.
How can I pull a list of students that are being counted towards the visualizations and tables?
You can create a segment in your instance and utilize the Sources (All Properties) filter to identify your list. If you are wanting to filter the list with a student dimension like term, major, or student type use the "Active" term, major, or student type fields. Active fields use the most recently collected term, major, and student type found on the student profile.
Does the Web Sources tab track page views?
The Web Sources tab tracks the URL and UTM variables at the time the web source was created on the student profile. It does not display the student's page view to date. Stay tuned, a page views dashboard is on the way!
