Projects in Analysis Workspace allow you to view business-critical analyses that can be shared with stakeholders inside or outside your organization.

For general information about how to get started using Analysis Workspace, see Analysis Workspace overview.

The following sections describe how to create a project and start adding the key building blocks for any Analysis Workspace project: panels, visualizations, and components.

Begin creating a project

  1. In Adobe Analytics, select Workspace.

  2. On the Workspace tab, select the Projects tab on the left side of the page, then select Create project.

  3. Choose whether to create a blank project or a blank mobile scorecard

    • Blank project if you plan to share your analysis from the browser
    • Blank mobile scorecard if you plan to share your analysis from the Adobe Analytics dashboards mobile app.
  4. Select Create.

  5. Next, you need to add panels, visualizations, and components to your project. First, add panels to your project in Analysis Workspace, as described in Add panels to the project. You can then add visualizations to any panels. Finally, you can add components to any panels or visualizations.

Add panels to the project

Panels are the foundation to any project in Analysis Workspace. Panels are used to organize the content (visualizations and components) of a project.

Many of the panels provided in Analysis Workspace generate a full set of analyses based on a few user inputs.

To add a panel:

  1. Select the Panels icon in the left rail.

    The select Panels icon and the list of available panels.

  2. Search for the panel you want to add. When it appears in the left rail, drag it into your project.

  3. Add visualizations to your panel, as described in Add visualizations to the project.

    Alternatively, you can add components directly to a panel, as described in Add components to the project.

Add visualizations to the project

Visualizations (such as a freeform table, a bar chart, or a line chart) can be used to visually bring data to life.

TIP

Freeform tables are the most common type of visualization, and are the foundation for interactive data analysis. For more details about how to work with Freeform tables in Analysis Workspace, see Freeform table.

To add a visualization:

  1. Select the Visualizations icon in the left rail.

    The selected Visualizations icon and the list of available visualizations.

  2. Search for the visualization you want to add. When it appears in the left rail, drag it to a panel within your project.

  3. Add components to the visualization, as described in Add components to the project.

Add components to the project

Components make up the actual data of any project. You can add components to visualizations or to panels.

TIP

For information about each component, select the Info icon next to a component’s name in the left rail, or see the Components overview.

To add a component:

  1. Select the Components icon in the left rail.

    The selected Components icon and the list of available dimensions.

  2. Search for the component you want to add. When it appears in the left rail, drag it to a panel or visualization within your project.

  3. (Optional) Share the project as described in Save and share the project.

Save and share the project

As you create an analysis in Analysis Workspace, your work is automatically saved.

When you finish building out the project and it’s gathering actionable insights, the project is ready to be consumed by others. You can share the project with users and groups in your organization, or even with people outside your organization. For information about sharing a project, see Share projects.
