How do I exclude locations in user-related reports?

You can create user-related widgets in the dashboard and reports or when analyzing charts in Analytics > Web Insights. For example, you can create a report to view and export a list of users who browse the web the most.

By default, user-related widgets include locations and users. You can exclude locations by creating new or editing existing widgets and using the Exclude Location filter. This filter applies to all user-related widgets except for widgets in the default Security and Email Overview dashboards. It also applies to the Executive Report and all standard, user-related reports in Interactive Reports, except for reports in the Email Activity category.

To add or edit a widget in a dashboard or report, do the following:

  1. Select Web in the Widget Settings dialog.
  2. Select User as a data type to view from the Data Type menu.
  3. To apply the filter, expand Add Filter and choose User.
  1. Enable the Exclude Location filter.
  2. Click OK to save.

In the Analytics > Web Insights, Analytics > Mobile Insights, Analytics > Firewall Insights, or Analytics > DNS Insights pages, do the following:

  1. Select User as a data type to view from the menu above the chart.
  2. Expand Add Filter and choose User from the menu on the left pane.
  1. Enable the Exclude Location filter.
  2. Click Apply Filters to view the report.

To create a user report that excludes location, you copy a standard report, and then edit it. Admins can edit custom reports only. Standard reports cannot be edited. Admins with the default super admin role can edit any custom report; all other administrators can edit their own reports only. To edit a report, do the following:

  1. Go to Analytics > Interactive Reports.
  2. Select a standard report from a folder and click Copy Report. The report below includes locations and users.
  1. Click Edit Widget.
  2. Expand Add Filter and choose User. Enable the Exclude Location filter.
  3. Click OK to save.

The portal displays the report and adds it to the Custom Reports tab. The report below includes only users.
