Dimension fields constitute Users’ demographic information used to segment Users while analyzing reports. These can be any dimensions chosen by the Organization. Typically, the dimensions are User’s Location, Department, Function, Business Unit, Age, Gender & Tenure. There is no limit to the number of dimensions that you can create.
Any data dimension in the system can then be used to determine an audience, create segmentation and used to view more specific insights.
Standard dimensions (System built-in)
Hyphen as a system already has few set dimensions and these dimensions cannot be altered and will continue to be as it is. The following are the standard dimensions in the system-
|Field Name/Header Name||Description||Required?||What this is used for|
|User's Email Address||Required||"Most often, this would be the employee's corporate email address (@companyname.com); however we also support emails outside your @companyname.com domain, such as personal email IDs.
Emails are used by Users to login to Hyphen, and to communicate with the user (notifications/reminders/digests).
If employees do not have either corporate/personal email addresses, then please concatenate employeeID with your company domain ID, for ex: if your company domain is acme.com & employee's ID is 1234, then please fill firstname.lastname@example.org"

Define custom dimension in the system -

- The reporting dimensions for your organization are defined in the “Edit Dimensions” page
- Insights > User Management > Edit Dimensions (Button)
- Enter the new Dimension name in the text field and click Add.
- The new dimension gets created in the system.
For Eg- If your First, Second and third Dimensions are Location, Department & Gender respectively. In the dimension keys, you can mention it as location or loc or anything of your choice and so on.
- Dimension Key will be the label displayed for that dimension key throughout Hyphen
- This Dimension Key value needs to be used for creating user data CSV file.
