Implementer training - Overview of the insights dashboard

The insights dashboard is primarily targeted at non-technical users that are concerned with the reporting functions within Funnelback. This interface also enables users to maintain Funnelback’s best bets, synonyms, curator rules and training data for automated tuning.

The insights dashboard can be accessed standalone (by accessing https://localhost:8443/a/) and will also launch automatically when certain editing functions for results pages are selected within the search dashboard.

The insights dashboard overview screen is composed of several features, which perform different functions. These include:
