  • What is different – 3:00
  • New features overview – 4:10

And remember if you need a review of the basics of Analytics, there are resources here.


I had a follow up task . . . the problem with the continuous color was that it had popped Loans (Not In House) into the Color box and we needed to put both Loans (In House) and Loans (Not in House) in the Values (Y-Axis) box to get the nice stacked bar chart.


Look for more about Network Zone analytics coming soon.
