Context

Flurry Analytics has powerful context controls that allow you to view data in the way you wish. From comparing multiple series to viewing aggregations of apps (e.g. All Apps or iOS Apps), these controls offer you full control of the context for data displayed on the page.

Page Context

At the top of the page is a dropdown that controls the overall context of the page. On an App-based page (more on this later), the default will be All Apps. What this means is that when filling a context block (the colored boxes that control what series appear on the charts), you can select from any app in your company. If you changed this to a different context, for example iOS Apps, the options for blocks would be limited to just the apps in the selected group, in this case, iOS apps.

From here, you can also choose to create a custom App Group to meet your needs. For example, if you have logical groups of apps such as Luge, Bobsled, Freestyle Skiing, and Slalom Skiing, you could create custom groups for each of these. Then, if you selected the Luge app group, only the apps in that group would be selectable in the context bricks. Each time you select an item from this list, the context blocks are set to the state at which you last viewed them.

Context Blocks

These five blocks allow you to set the context of each series that appears on the charts. There are 4 possible states for a block.

Active

Active context blocks are those that are filled with color. Being active means that a series of that color will appear on the charts with the context selected in the block.

Invisible

Invisible context blocks are those that are filled with white and include an icon of an eye with a strikethrough. Being invisible means that while this block has a selected context, no series will appear on the charts for this block.

Inactive

Inactive context blocks are those that are filled with light grey and have text similar to + APP OR GROUP. Blocks in this state are available for you to use to add another series to the charts on the page.

Disabled

Disabled context blocks are those that are filled with dark grey and include an icon of an eye with a strikethrough. A disabled block generally appears when a group (e.g. App Group) has been selected but the current page does not support groups.

Summary Values

Unlike charts, the summary values above the charts on most pages only support a single context. For this reason, when more than one context block is active, these numbers are not displayed and instead a message explains why with a Learn More button linking to this page.

Single Selected Context - Summary Values Displayed

With a single block in the active state, the summary values are visible.

Multiple Selected Contexts - Summary Values Not Displayed

With multiple blocks in the active state, the summary values are replaced with a message.
