We continue to tweak our popular analytics reports to improve usability and the ease of generating insights. The latest in this effort is Dynamic Time Calculations - this update lets every user view these reports specific to their location and time analysis needs. 

Below is a sprinkling of ways to take advantage of this feature update. 

Personalize your time zone

Your time zone is set automatically in your profile as a new user - this means you interpret all the insights on your analytics reports specific to your time zone. 

Let’s look at an example from the ‘Software delivery activity’ report. In the snapshot below, the commits trend chart shows the numbers specific to the Eastern Time Zone: 13,356 total commits from May 1st to May 31st, 2024. The same chart in a different time zone can yield a different result depending on the start of the May 1st count. 

Users now have the option to overwrite the automatic time zone setting through their profile. Click on ‘User Profile’ under your name to head to a secondary screen.

On the secondary screen, uncheck the ‘Set time zone automatically’ box and pick your preferred time zone.

Use pre-defined time filters…

When you click the filter button, three new pre-defined time filters appear - Last 7 days, Last 30 days, and Last 90 days. These time filters let you aggregate and get a good measure of daily, weekly, and monthly activity on a rolling basis. 

...Or set your own time filters

If the pre-defined time filters don't suit your analysis needs, choose ‘Custom range’ to pick a start and end date. 

All these options are available across each of the 5 analytics reports. If you have any questions, contact us via Slack or email our support team. And if you haven’t seen the platform in action yet…
