With Saved Filters you can create a complex filter combination and then:
- load that same filter on another page in Adthena
- load the same filter at a later date
- share your filter with your teammates
- schedule the filter to email you the results
- Create a New Saved Filter
- Apply a Saved Filter
- Overwrite an Existing Filter
- Share a Filter With Colleagues
- Delete a Filter
- Schedule a Filter
It’s very simple: just navigate any page that you want to use the filter on (i.e. Market Share or Search Term Detail), select the filter parameters you require, click Apply and then click on Save. Give the filter a name, then confirm Save.
Note that the parameters saved in a filter include: anything in the grey Filters box (including checkboxes), My Terms/Whole Market, device, traffic (paid/organic), filtered/unfiltered share
You can then return to Adthena, quickly select one of your previously Saved Filters from the drop down menu which will load the parameter in the filterbox. Click Apply and the chart/table will be filtered by the parameters, all with just one click!
You can Overwrite a filter by selecting it from the drop down and applying it. Making the required amendments to the filter parameters and applying them. When you hit Save you will find that the text box is pre-populated with the filter name. Hit Save again and the filter will have been updated.
Each Saved Filter is visible only to you by default, but you can share the Saved Filter with the rest of your organisation by clicking Reports & Alerts, then Saved Filters and then Share in the Actions column. They will then see the Saved Filter you created in their dropdown.
On the Saved Filters page there is a delete button (trash can) in the Actions column, click it and confirm you want to delete the filter.
Once you have saved a filter, you can schedule it by going to Reports & Alerts > Scheduled Reports > Create Scheduled Report.
How can I quickly filter by Competitor Group or Search Term Group?
First click 'Filters' to open the filter box, then 'Filter by' then 'Competitor Groups' or 'Search Term Groups' then select the required group from the dropdown. (For the groups you filter by frequently you can now Save this as a filter).
I selected a Saved Filter from the dropdown, but the data has not changed?
You need to click the Apply button for the filters to be applied.
Why do I not see all Saved Filters in the dropdown?
You will only see filters that you have created and filters that have been shared in the dropdown. You can load the others using the Quick Filters dropdown on the Saved Filters page.
How are Saved Filters ordered in the dropdown?
You will see the filters that you created, followed by filters that are shared in your account
How can I delete a Saved Filter?
Go to Reports & Alerts then Saved Filters, find the filter in the table and click the bin/delete button.
How can I edit a Saved Filter?
Load the filter and apply, make any amendments and apply, click Save then Save again (without changing the name of the filter).
My Saved Filter contained search terms and competitors that are no longer included when I reapply the filter days/months later
This should not happen very often, but since every night Adthena re-calculates and updates your Whole Market, it can be determined that a search term or competitor is no longer part of your market and so no longer in your account. You can prevent this if required by adding Priority Terms or Named Competitors.
What if the Search Term Groups or Competitor Groups in my Saved Filter are updated?
You cannot delete a group that is contained within a filter (the filter needs to be updated first). If a group is renamed then any filters containing the group will be automatically updated.
