Keep everyone informed: Send custom Pushmail reports in response to any trigger

Available for Enterprises and Teams, Netvibes Pushmails are automated email reports that you can send to anyone, on any schedule, using the exact graphs and information you want to include. You can design unlimited Pushmails to keep teams informed about brand mentions and other metrics, send an automatic monthly report to clients, and much more.

Today we are pleased to announce that Pushmails are now supported by Netvibes Potions, delivering even more customization options to help you keep everyone informed, 24/7/365.

Netvibes Potions allow you automate custom interactions from the dashboard–for example: If these 2 things happen, then do X; otherwise, do Y and Z. (To learn more about Potions, visit our documentation page.)

Now that Pushmails are a supported “Action” for Potions, you can schedule Pushmails to be sent in response to any Potion trigger. You can schedule Pushmails to go out at a specific time, in response to apps or data, or only when a data trend erupts. For example:

  • Reports-on-Demand: When Client A sends me an email that includes keywords “numbers this week,” then automatically send the “Weekly Client A” Pushmail report.
  • Report-when-Metric-is-achieved: When our social media campaign reaches its target goal, automatically send a Pushmail report to the team.
  • Report-when-Data-trends: When our website traffic declines for 2 weeks in a row, automatically send me a Pushmail report analyzing our top web traffic sources.

Potions with Pushmail feature a new dashboard wizard, delivering even more control over the content and style of your email reports. You can easily add or remove articles, apps and dashboard tabs to your Pushmail. You can also change the colors and styling, as well as easily change the order of any the content you’ve chosen to include in any Pushmail.

Learn more about Pushmails on our website, or read a real customer case study. For questions or a free demo, please contact us.

New on the Dashboard: Merge Entities within Search Facets

Netvibes Universal Search (available for VIP and Premium dashboards) makes it quick and simple to locate any piece of content or information from your dashboard. Simply type in a keyword, use Boolean search terms, or drill down by facets–including people, geographical location, sentiment (negative/positive/neutral), and more.

Beginning today, Premium users can now merge multiple entities together in Universal Search in order to avoid redundancies and analyze data in different ways. Here’s how it works.

In Universal Search, named entities are typed information that can be extracted from your personal corpus or sources. The Netvibes dashboard automatically identifies these entities. For example: “Donald J. Trump” is an entity under the “People” facet, and “Super Bowl” is an entity under the “Event” facet.

Netvibes’ goal is to always provide you with accurate answers to the questions you want to ask. With many redundant names in use for brands, people and events, it can be difficult to get accurate insights on the topics most important to you. Using Mr. Trump as an example, there are many different entities referring to him, such as: “Donaldrump,” “Presiden John Trump,” “Donald J. Tt Trump” and more. By default, the Netvibes dashboard tracks each of these entities separately. If you want to analyze “President Trump” mentions versus “Donald J. Trump” mentions, that’s easy to do.

But what if you want to analyze ALL Trump mentions (regardless of the name people call him)? You can now easily merge entities together on the Netvibes dashboard to avoid redundancies and group similar words together for clearer insights. This feature also streamlines the analytics on your dashboard to reveal more accurate results. For example, a Word Cloud graph showing the most popular words associated with “Donald Trump” might be cluttered with Trump names, but after you merge the entities together, the Word Cloud will list Trump only once, thereby revealing other terms associated with the topic.

To merge entities on the dashboard, click on an entity (example: “Donald J. Trump”), and from the menu click “Associate with.” Following the wizard instructions, you can associate any entity(ies) with another entity. Here are some examples where this is useful:
