Managing Custom Keywords

Summary: Custom keywords allows you to define new words related to your datasets and your business.

Custom keywords provide additional flexibility in using words that are not part of the native Answerdock lexicon. With this feature,  you can define your own keywords to use when searching your data.

For example, a company might have a specific meaning for “VIP clients” , having for example monthly revenue > 10k$. You can define a keyword “VIP clients” that specifically denotes clients with revenue >10k$. Users then can use this keyword in their searches.

Another example can be a company that differentiates between paid and non paid users. In this case you can define a keyword “non paid” that means” charges=0″, or “paid” which means “Charges>0”. Then you can do all kind of questions such as

  • Average Session Duration and bounce rate  Paid vs Non Paid
