So does MFN complement our existing metrics tool(s) rather than replace them?
Liz Worthington
16:25
Great question. Yes! It is a great complement to what you already have
Samuel Lucci
16:54
Will there be time at the end to ask more involved questions?
Liz Worthington
16:58
yes!
enrique gonzales
18:09
which Science News?
Samuel Lucci
18:12
How do you define “core audience”?
Samuel Lucci
18:18
In this context
Metrics for News
19:06
Yes MFN definitely complements real-time analytics platforms
Lindsay Carbonell
19:12
In this case, we mean an audience segment that you import through Google Analytics
Lindsay Carbonell
19:32
^ for core audience
Metrics for News
19:47
So to expand on what Lindsay said, “Core audience” would look different for everyone
Samuel Lucci
19:59
Gotcha, thanks!

And it’s compatible with all analytics tools? We use Parse.ly as our main tool, but also have GA running.
Lindsay Carbonell, success engineer for Metrics for News
20:59
For this version, we are only including Google Analytics. Parse.ly is not supported in MFN at the moment, but it will be in the future
Metrics for News
21:06
For this particular dashboard, we are only able to connect with GA at this time
Metrics for News
21:23
I’ll let Lindsay take the questions now ;)
Graham Watson-Ringo
21:29
Thanks
Samuel Lucci
22:00
Would Metrics for News be able to help us set up Author as a customer dimension in GA?
Samuel Lucci
22:13
custom*
Graham Watson-Ringo
22:20
Or any other dimensions that would be helpful ^
Lindsay Carbonell, success engineer for Metrics for News
22:45
For this version, we won’t be setting up anything custom in GA. For the full version of MFN, we have a contractor you can work with to set up complex segments/dimensions in GA
Lindsay Carbonell, success engineer for Metrics for News
24:07
(The full version of MFN has author dashboards and we use author types as well as a custom tag)
Liz Worthington
26:18
Those are annual fees too
Samuel Lucci
27:04
Will we continue to have access to the COVID dashboard and associated data after the trial if we don’t opt to pay for Metrics for News?
Graham Watson-Ringo
27:09
Are there nonprofit discounts?
Ellen Acconcia
27:40
When will we be informed if we have been selected for the 4 month trial?
Samuel Lucci
29:33
Do we get a single log in for our whole org or unique logins for each user? My org would likely have 2-5 users
George Buce
31:11
What are the preferred analytics sources for MFN? Will it be less accurate if we don't have Adobe?
Samuel Lucci
37:35
Thank you!
Graham Watson-Ringo
37:37
