Group Suggestions for graph analysis is currently in beta. For information on Group Suggestions for funnels, see Group Suggestions (Funnel).
Group Suggestions allow you to further explore your analysis by suggesting relevant properties to group your results by. This is done by proactively analyzing which groupings have changing composition over time, which automates the “guess and check” work of trying different groupings when investigating unusual spikes and trends in a graph.
Group Suggestions for graphs allow you to use all of the functionality of Group Suggestions to graph analysis. The current properties that may be suggested for graph analysis are:
- Device Type
- Target Text
- Landing Page
- UTM Source
- UTM Campaign
- UTM Medium
- UTM Content
- UTM Term
Just like with funnel reports, if you don’t see suggested group bys appear in your query, it is because the type of query you set up is not one that would prompt the suggestion to group by one of these properties. The suggested properties are ordered left-to-right based on how strongly they are related to the events in your query.
Note: We will only show Suggestions if the graph query is grouped by week or month.
After running a graph report, you will see a set of Suggestions. You can select one of these to further explore your analysis results. For example, if you have a graph report to track views of your request demo page, we may suggest grouping by UTM Campaign, UTM Content, or Browser to surface insights in user behavior.
After you’ve clicked on a group by to add it to your query, it will be listed in the query as Suggested for your reference.
You can use the Add Group By button to add additional group bys to this query for additional insights into user behavior. Once you remove the first Suggestion, the rest of the group bys previously suggested will be listed in the drop-down as suggested for you to easily reference.
Note: Group Suggestions will not appear if your analysis is not set up to allow group bys, such as if your graph is already using compare by.
