What are external metrics?

External metrics are metrics that can be created based on your imported data.

These can be data about sales per day, or staff budget in € per day and contract type (here, you could use employee skills to see if more hours were worked than the staff budget intended), as well as HR budget in hours per week and many other data.

Your file can be presented graphically or even combined with other metrics.

How do I import external metrics? 

If you are the Super-Admin, you can import your own files.

Click on the gear icon on the bottom left-hand side → Account settings → then on the three dots and choose "Exports/Imports" → finally select "Imports" on the top right-hand side

Click on the "+" on the right-hand side to upload a new file.

Do you want to upload a metric? Then select "Metric".

By clicking on "Example", you can download an explanatory datafile so that you can configure and understand the file correctly. Import the file to test it out and it quickly becomes clear how it works (please change the Company_Id and name of the file).

You can then create a combined metric or directly create a report.

Is there anything that could have been explained better? Are there any other questions?

Feel free to get in touch with us, either directly via a comment, or by telephone or chat.

All the best,
