Feature Update: PDF Reports

Tom

Good food, road cycling and outdoor adventures are just some of the things that excite me in life. There's also Brand24, digital marketing and advertising -- some day I'd love to try the last one. Loving English language and literature since a kid.

Brand24 has a few ways to export data from your projects and make use of it outside the tool. One of them, PDF reports, have just got a huge facelift. But there’s more than the facelift – there’s more data. 

PDF reports have always been of massive value to a great deal of our dear customers. They’ve been using using reports to present data about online presence to their customers, their team leaders and share results within teams.

The update we’ve just rolled out is a boost both to the contents and the design of the report. Here’s what’s new:

  • New design 
  • Way, way, way more pieces of data
  • Customizable contents
  • Optional features
  • How to create your report

PDF reports got a brand new look. Here you have it in all its beauty:

Way more pieces of data

Let’s move to with what’s most important – data. 

From now on, your PDF report can present virtually all pieces of data Brand24 tracks. We’re talking here about data points such as:

  • Volume of mentions
  • Volume of interactions
  • Sentiment analysis
  • Social media reach
  • Volume of mentions per category
  • Quotes
  • Most active profiles
  • Most influential profiles
  • Most active sites
  • Most influential sites
  • Most popular mentions
  • Recent mentions
  • Project comparison
  • Context of discussion
  • Locations
  • Trending hashtags
  • Numerical summary

Tip: All above pieces of data have been described right here.


Customizable contents

Brand24 is a complex and all-round tool that finds applications within various realms of digital marketing. Every user finds value in different pieces of data the tool offers. There are people who might need sentiment analysis but might not necessarily need, for example, interactions.

With that in mind, with new PDF reports, you choose what data your report will contain – to do so, simply flip the switch next to the data point you want in your report.

Important: Remember that web and social media monitoring tools in general gather little historical data. Therefore, it’s best to operate on dates after you created your project.

Tick modules you want to present in your report.

7. Optional: Choose quotes

Putting quotes in your report might come in handy if you want to present, for example, particularly valuable pieces of feedback, comments, reviews and other mentions. 

Adding quotes, however, doesn’t happen in the report creator. To add quotes to your report, go to Mentions tab, find your mentions and click Add to PDF Report.
