DISCO's reporting function lets you quickly generate powerful insights on your activity in the app.
You can access Reports from the top right drop down menu:
Generating reports: filters
Reports are playlist based. They're designed to show you different selections of playlists you've made, and the tracks in those playlists, based on a wide range of filters and options:
• playlists you've sent to a particular contact
• playlists that contain tracks with particular metadata (like a label or artist name)
• playlists in a channel, or with a particular tag
• client playlists
• playlists with a particular term in the title.
Here's a guide to the different filters and options in reporting:
The date filter lets you generate a report for a specific period. By default, reports will be for all time, but you can specify a specific date range by clicking on the date filter. There, you can choose a preset date range (last 30 or 90 days, for instance) or a custom period:
Sent to client filter
The 'Sent to client' filter lets you filter your report to playlists you've shared to a particular recipient.
Featuring writer filter
The 'Featuring writer' filter lets you filter your report to playlists featuring at least one track with a split by a particular writer.
Generated by user filter
The 'Generated by user' filter lets you filter your report to playlists created by specific members of your team.
Featuring metadata filter
The 'Featuring metadata' filter lets you filter your report by particular track metadata or DISCO comments. You can search your entire DISCO metadata in the main field:
Or, by clicking 'Show advanced', you can refine your search to a particular metadata field, or a DISCO client or internal comment:
Featuring playlist title filter
The 'Featuring playlist' filter lets you filter your report to playlists featuring a particular term in the title.
Available in the middle 'Filters' section, the 'Filter by channel' filter lets you refine your report to playlists in a particular channel or channels. Note that when you add multiple playlists in the channel filter, the report will give you playlists in any of those channels, rather than playlists which are in each of the selected channels:
Also available in the middle 'Filters' section, the 'Filter by tags' filter lets you refine your report to playlists tagged with particular playlist tags. Unlike the channel filter, entering multiple tags in the tag filter will give you only playlists that feature all of the selected tags.
Client list filter
The 'Client lists only' filter lets you filter your report to only those playlists marked 'Client Version'.
Generating reports: output options
The reports feature gives you a range of options for what information can be included in the report.
Include access stats
Checking 'Include access stats' will include downloads and stream activity for the playlist. If no recipient is chosen in the report, total stats for the playlists will be shown; these will be totals, and won't be broken down by recipient.
If a recipient is selected, stats for just that recipient will be shown.
Checking 'Include tags' will include any playlist tags applied to the playlists. Multiple tags will be comma separated.
Checking 'Include recipients' will include any users the playlist was shared to via DISCO, either via email share or assigned URLs.
Include user who created the playlist
Checking 'Include user who created the playlist' will include the user in your DISCO who created the playlist.
The checkboxes in 'Track information' let you output metadata and other track information in the report. By default, the report will include track artist, title and album metadata, but you can also choose to include any of the other track metadata fields DISCO supports, plus PRO number and DISCO comments.
The checkboxes in 'Writer information' let you output writer split information, including writer name, split %, publisher and PRO.
Generating reports: preview and download options
When you've selected your filters and output options, click Preview report to see a preview of your results, Export to Excel to export the results as a .xlsx file, or Export to csv to export the files to .csv.
Smaller reports should be downloadable immediately; larger reports will be emailed to you.
Note: the maximum number of results a report can contain is 10000. If your report generates more results than that, the first 10000 results will be included in your export.
