Global Filter

Global Filter options

Cognigy Insights comes with so-called global filters. These filters can be set in a selection menu when clicking on the filter icon next to the user menu icon on the top right-hand side of the user interface.

Filter icon with tooltip

Global filter always will be available no matter where you navigate. Once you have changed the filters, all of the data visualized in any location will respect your filter configuration.

Global filter menu

The global filter options are available in all applications running in Cognigy Insights.


Every change in filter settings needs to be confirmed with “Apply” to be active.

Several filter menus provide a "Negate" slide bar. When active all but the selected endpoints will be analyzed.


You can select the time period or set it individually with a date picker in a calendar.

Available preset time periods are:

  • Last 7 days
  • Last 30 days
  • Last 365 days
  • This month
  • This year
  • Custom period (freely selectable with the entry of start date and end date)
Timeframe filter options


Endpoints make sure that the channel-specific input and output (Images, Galleries, Voice) gets converted to the standardized Input object. This way, a Cognigy Flow needs to be developed only once, after which it can be deployed to many different channels by configuring Endpoints. Endpoints examples are Webchat / Voice Gateway, Microsoft Teams, Google Actions,… You can find more information here: Endpoints

You can select one or more Endpoint(s) to be analyzed.

Updating Analytics records using Rest API

If you intend to update certain analytics fields on Insights dashboards for an ongoing session you need to use the update API for analytics, available on More information you can find here: Using the API.

Using the "analytics" API you need to specify userId, sessionId and inputId in the request.

Sharing application URL

Cognigy is always striving to improve conversational data analysis and processing for clients and provides the ability to use shareable URLs for the Insights application.

In detail: If you navigate to a specific destination within Insights and apply global filters, copying the URL from your address bar and sharing it with a team member, opening the URL will bring the application into the same state (same tool, same selected data, same filters applied).

Your advantages:

  • You can reload on any Insights Page and it will restore the global filters you selected before.
  • You can reload on an open Transcript in the Transcript Explorer and you will land on the same page with the transcript open.
  • You can reload on the Message Explorer while having a "search" applied and get to the same as you were in before reloading.
  • You can reload on the Message Explorer while having a message selected and get to the same as you were in before reloading.
