Splitting the Field Report

 

The field report can be split by several different variables, including system default variables, variables passed through the URL with a value list defined, and custom date ranges. Splitting the field report by URL Variables and date ranges require some setup beforehand. This document will cover the process for setting up and applying splits to these custom variables in the field report.

1:  Setup

The following section describes how to setup URL Variables and custom date ranges in the field report.

1.1:  URL Variables

If a variable passed through the URL has a value list defined, tabs in the field report can be split by the set values of the variable. 

To begin, the variable must be included in the Sample Source’s URL Variables, set to Required, and have a value list defined for Authentication.

In the example below, the Email Sample includes the Required group variable with a value list of 1, 2, 3.

1.2:  Date Ranges

If a custom report has been created with defined date ranges, tabs in the field report can be split by date.

To begin, create a custom report in the Report (2010).

Then, create a new report by clicking "+ New Report."

On the Report (2010) Landing page select new report, and create segments that fit the desired date ranges using the "start of" and "end of" dropdowns and click "Add Date Restriction." Once all segments are created, click Save. Each segment of the saved report will be a column in field split.

Once all segments are created give the custom report a name and click "Save report >>." This is the name that will show in the split menu.

2:  Usage

To access the field report, select "Field Report" from the Report menu.

Learn More: About the Field Report

The field report can be split by a variety of variables. To select a variable for the split, open the "Split Report by:" menu at the top of the report, select the variable or variables to split the report by, and click "split."

2.1:  Default Variables

By default, there are several variables that the Field Report can be split by. No setup is required for the variables available in the "Split Report by:" menu below.

The Field Report can be split by the following variables:

  • decLang: Languages added to the survey.
  • list: Sample sources added to the survey. 
  • OS: Operating systems tracked by the vos virtual question.
  • browser: Browsers tracked by the vbrowser virtual question.
  • Mobile OS: Mobile operating systems tracked by the vmobileos virtual question.
  • Mobile Category: Types of mobile device tracked by the vmobiledevice virtual question.

The field report can be split by multiple variables, as is the case in the example below in which the report is split by both the decLang and list variables.

2.2:  Sample Source Variables

If a required variable with value list authentication is added to a Sample Source, the Field Report can be split by the defined values of the variable. The example below will split the report by the values of the group variable that was defined in the Sample Source.

Please note that only those variables with a value list defined will be available in the "Split Report by:" menu.

After running the split, all tabs in the Field Report will be split by all values of the selected variable or variables.

2.3:  Date Ranges

If a date range is declared in a custom report, the Field Report can be split by the defined dates. 

The example below will split the report by the two Waves defined in the custom report.

After running the split, all tabs in the Field Report will be split by the date ranges declared in the custom report, in this case the Waves.

2.4:  Email Providers

When you split the campaign by email on the field report, the campaign tab splits to show you the details of how the email was sent through various email providers. 

The following table lists the providers and the associated domains used for most summary statistics. The asterisk character (*) indicates a wildcard match.

Note: The spam rate uses a different set of email providers and domains for the base as described here.

Email Provider Associated domains
Gmail googlemail.com, gmail.com
Yahoo ymail.*, yahoo.*
Hotmail hotmail.*, outlook.*, live.*, msn.*
AOL aim.*, aol,*
Apple icloud.com, mac.com, me.com
Other *

2.4.1:  Understanding the Spam Rate

The following table lists the providers and the associated domains used for the base of the spam complaints. The asterisk character (*) indicates a wildcard match.
