Mashups

Use Cyfe's "Mashup" widget (located in the Custom section) to do a variety of things. 

This is an incredibly unique way of bringing your aggregated/total statistics in, or from two distinct, unrelated sources.

Pro Tips & Tricks:

Idea #1) Create custom widgets beyond our preconfigured, prebuilt widgets. Include the metrics you want your colleagues or clients to see.

Idea #2) Use the divide function to spot new correlations and trends between 2 completely different parts of your organization.

Idea #3) Use the add or subtract function to create net or aggregate/cumulative values (example below)

 

Example: Aggregate All of Your (or Your Clients') Website Statistics

Step 1) Make sure you have all your Google websites available through 1 (or more) connected Google profiles using the Google Analytics widget

Step 2) Create an individual widget for each website, focusing on a consistent metric you want to monitor in order for the data to be consistent and "apples to apples".  

For example, Widget #1 could be "Website A" with the Metric of Sessions. Widget #2 would then be "Website B" with the same Metric of Sessions. Place them wherever (and even hide the widgets, if you'd like). 

Tip: it doesn't matter where you place these, it can be a separate or "staging" dashboard. That said, it's a great idea to monitor all sites on one screen, so you could keep them in the same place!

Step 3) Use the Mashup widget to add in all of the sites from Step 2! In our example above, simply pick each "Sessions" metric from Site A and Site B and add them together using the "+" icon. 

 

This is a great way to monitor broad trends for your website portfolio if you have several, or if you are an agency, a great way to crunch numbers for your clients' total website performance (for internal or marketing purposes).
