Create a Widget

We recommend that you always define your expected results before working in Analytics. Determine what you are looking for by using concise and explicit questions. This will help you translate your needs into the widget configuration.

For example: What stakeholders have we interacted with in the last month?

Have a clear idea of the information you are looking for: column names, sorting, etc. This will allow you to better define the parameters to be used, before finalizing its structure.
