This panel contains a number of tables and visualizations to easily identify the next or previous dimension item for a specific dimension. For example, you might want to explore which pages customers went to most often after they visited the Home page.

Access the panel

You can access the panel from within Reports or within Workspace.

Access point Description
Reports
  • The panel is already dropped into a project.
  • The left rail is collapsed.
  • If you selected Next page, default settings have already been applied, such as Page for Dimension, and the top page as the Dimension Item, Next for Direction and Visit for Container. You can modify all these settings.
Next/Previous panel
Workspace Create a new project and select the Panel icon in the left rail. Then drag the Next or previous item panel above the Freeform table. Notice that the Dimension and Dimension Item fields are left blank. Select a dimension from the drop-down list. Dimension items are populated based on the dimension you chose. The top dimension item gets added, but you can select a different item. The defaults are Next and Visitor. Again, you can modify these as well.
