What is Data tracking?

Data tracking is a new feature available in Web intelligence in BOXI 3.1. Data tracking places your current report data in context by highlighting changed data and displaying the previous value of a dimension or measure along with its current value.

Data Tracking Options:

Web Intelligence XI 3.1 highlights changed data according to parameters you set. You control the formatting of the changed data, the types of changed data highlighted and the amount of data change that triggers data highlighting.

Reference Data:

When you track data changes, you select a particular data refresh as a reference point. This data is known as the reference data. When you display the data changes, Web Intelligence places your current data in context by showing how it relates to the reference data.

Data Refresh with Data Tracking Options and Reference Data:

After some time, when we refresh the same report, it will check the new updated data with the reference report data (given above) and it will show the changes as per the parameters you set in data tracking options.

Advantages:

We can focus our analysis on key areas and avoid wasting time exploring irrelevant data.
