Insights and Facts can have slightly different applications, depending on the organisation that uses them in the Galaxy. That’s why there’s the option for Galaxy account admins to add two Custom Lists, which can be used in Insights.

Custom Lists can also be used to enhance Touchpoints, find out more about this here.

Setting Up Insights Custom Lists

As an admin in a Galaxy account, you can set up two Custom Lists for everyone in your account to use in their Insights. To do so;

  1. Go to Content Management in the top menu bar and select ‘Custom Lists’ from the dropdown

  2. You will automatically be directed to the Insights Custom Lists page

  3. You now have the option to create two Custom Lists

Give your Custom List a title using the top text field. Make sure you use a recognizable title, as this title will be visible to all other users in your account when creating and filtering Insights.

You can add as many list items as you like and choose a corresponding colour for all of these items. The name labels and colours will be shown to others when using the dropdown list, the colours will be visible when displaying Insights in Milkymaps as well. Edits you make here will be visible to all others in the account immediately and are saved automatically.

Using Custom List items in your Insights

When creating a new Insight or when editing an existing Insight, you can select one item per Custom List. To do so:

  1. Either start creating a new ‘My Insight’ or ‘Our Insight’ or edit an existing one

  2. Under the title of either Custom List, press to open the dropdown

  3. Click the Custom List item you’d like to add to select it. This selection will be visible everywhere this Insight is used.

  4. Press Save

Filtering & Ordering Based on Custom Lists

In the Insight Control overview, you can use Custom List items as filter options and to organize your Insights.

Filter using Custom Lists

  1. Go to ‘Insight Control’ by using the top navigation bar

  2. Click ‘Filters’ to open the dropdown menu

  3. Select one or multiple values from your Custom List that you want to use as a filter.

Ordering using Custom Lists

  1. Go to ‘Insight Control’ by using the top navigation bar

  2. Press either of your Custom Lists to change the order of your Insights based on the values in this list. Pressing the title of your Custom List again will reverse the order.
