    Steps to add Statistical Categories for Analytics

    • Product: Alma

     

    Question

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

    Answer

    1. Define Statistical Categories in: Configuration > User Management > User Details > Statistical Categories (e.g. "Art", "History"). 

    2. Create Category Type for the statistics in: Configuration > User Management > User Details > Category Types (e.g. "Medical", "Honors Students", etc.)

    3. Map the relevant statistical Categories to the user category Types in: Configuration > User Management > Statistical Categories/Types (e.g. "Art" is linked to: "Honors Students").

    4. Add these categories to the Analytics configuration in: Configuration > Analytics > Analytics User Statistics (e.g. STATISTICS_1 = Medical). 

    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.
