Gather meaningful data (Part 1)

Learn more about the Analytics feature so you can start visualizing and analyzing your SafetyCulture data for your organization.

The article outlines the functionalities of the new Analytics experience, which is currently in Early Access. If you have any feedback about the new Analytics experience, we'd love to hear them from you.

What is Analytics?

The Analytics feature allows you to view and analyze the data your team captures in SafetyCulture. You can create customizable dashboards, enabling you to make sense of your data to identify improvement opportunities and isolate trends.

Customizable charts on the web app.

With Analytics, you can create customized dashboards to effectively share relevant data across your organization. Within each dashboard, you can tailor the charts shown to help your team cut through the noise and quickly gain an understanding of key data sets.

By now, your pilot users have ideally tested SafetyCulture for two weeks and have enough activity in the organization that you can start visualizing your data in Analytics. We recommend you start with your initial data to determine what information would be helpful for your organization in the long run.

Explore analytics for Training in SafetyCulture using the performance dashboard to view your users' overall performance across published lessons and courses. You can also dive deeper into individual and group course completion progress.

Visualize your data

Focus on what's important by creating dashboards and charts that you can tailor depending on the data sets you want to analyze.

Dashboards

Once a dashboard is created and shared, it becomes available on the Analytics page. Each dashboard can contain multiple charts, which can be used to focus on a particular area of interest.

Analytics charts can be configured to ensure only relevant data is shared with your audience. There are multiple data visualization options available to allow you to convey your organization's data in the most suitable way.
