    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version: April-2016



    How to map our Statistical Category field added for users/patrons, so we can query it in Analytics?


    First, create the statistics drop-down options.

    1. Go to: User Management Configuration Menu (under: ADMINISTRATION)
    2. Click: Category Types
    3. Add categories, via the "Quick Add" button

    Secondly, add these categories to the Analytics configuration.

    1. Go to: Analytics Configuration Menu (also under: ADMINISTRATION)
    2. Click: Analytics User Statistics
    3. Pull the categories defined above


    Test this configuration by adding information to a sample user, and see how it looks in Analytics, on the following day.

    The way the data is presented may lead you to change the way you build these categories.
