Visitor Reports

Last Updated:


Visitor Reports are the best way to see detailed information about a Segment, like who they are, what metadata values they have, and what their product usage is. Visitor Reports can be created by anyone in your subscription and all the reports you can view are shown in the Visitor Reports tab on the Visitors page. An individual report will show all of the data you've selected, organized in columns, by Visitor ID. You can use tools in the report to export it as a CSV, refresh the data, edit the report, duplicate it, delete it, or subscribe to the report to receive it in a weekly email.

Visitor Reports Tab


The Visitor Reports tab shows all of the Visitor Reports you can view. Reports can be visible to Everyone or you can restrict them for only yourself. The columns include basic information like Name, Time Range of report data, who created it, Visibility of the report, which app is being queried, and which Segment the report targets.

Tip: Come up with a naming convention and sharing policy for reports for your subscription. Many users across multiple departments can create a lot of reports as they're analyzing Segments. Naming reports by department, project, or meeting and only sharing with Everyone when necessary will help keep the list of Visitor Reports manageable.


Create a Visitor Report

There are two ways to create a Visitor Report. The Visitor List on the Visitor Overview tab can be quickly saved as a report or a new report can be created from the Visitor Reports tab.

Create a Report from the Visitor List


Click Save as Visitor Report in the Actions menu to save the current Visitor List as a Visitor Report. This is helpful when you're using the Overview tab to do a quick analysis a Segment of users and want to save the details for later or share it with someone.


A Create Visitor Report form will pop up with the Filters and Visitor List Columns you've already selected. Give it a name, make any changes, and click Create Report.

You'll be taken to the Visitor Report page for your new report.

Create a Report from Visitor Reports


Click + Create Report on the Visitor Reports tab to create a new report.

Select the Segment for your report from existing segments or create a new segment.

Select the App you want to pull data from if you have a multi-app subscription.

Note: A report will include each unique combination of included fields. When using an account-level field (such as 'Account ID'), visitors with multiple accounts will always show up as separate rows.

Click Create Report to go to the Visitor Report page for your new report. Your new analysis will run automatically and your data will be display as soon as it's ready, usually within a few seconds. Complex reports querying large data sets may take slightly longer.


The Visitor Report
