Brightspot CMS User Guide

Configuring the Authorship widget

The Authorship widget provides reports into your published assets' popularity and fills a reporting niche that is not easily met by historical reporting capabilities. This reporting is enabled through a new Group By report type, that enables an administrator to group results by one or two fields. The Authorship widget allows you to select which category to group your report by and to select between Brightspot Analytics or Google Analytics as the data supplier.

To configure the Authorship widget:

  1. Create or open a shared of one-off dashboard that includes the Authorship widget. For details, see Editing a shared dashboard.
  2. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  3. Click Save.
Field Description
Heading Enter the heading for the Authorship widget. This heading is visible on the dashboard.
Authorship Supplier Select the analytics supplier to provide the data for this widget.
Group By Select how you want the data to be grouped. For example, if you want the data to be grouped by individual authors, select Authors.
Period Select the unit of measurement for the time period used to display data.
Time Zone Select the time zone to use for the beginning and end of the period selection you made. This field is only visible after a Period is selected.
Amount Enter the number of periods for which data is reported. For instance, if you selected Past Months and you enter the number 2, the Authorship widget displays data for the past two months.
