Click the green plus-sign icon at the top-left corner to create a new collection.
Collections can be renamed and are useful for storing related queries together. Queries, facets, and results are stored in snapshots.
Click the icon with a camera, directly to the right of the new collection icon, to create a new snapshot.
The snapshot name cannot be changed. Each snapshot will be named for the collection and the current datetime.
Collections can contain multiple snapshots. You can delete individual snapshots within a collection, or you can delete entire collections (including all snapshots within it).
Within the snapshot, click on the Query tab to navigate to the window where you can write your query.
Click on the icons you need to build your query. There are 5 different parameters: "text query", "nominal field query", "date query", and "number range query" ; as well as the "geolocation filter." Click the "add grouping" icon to add parentheses that you can drag and drop. Click on the "raw query" icon to write a query in Lucene query syntax.
Click the Done icon when you are finished, and you will be redirected to the Dashboard to run the query and view the results.
To run the query and see the results, click on the blue refresh icon.
Click the settings icon to change what variables will be returned and the order that documents will be returned.
To save the query, click the folder icon to the far left. To save the entire snapshot, including all results, click the camera icon.
To download the results in a tab-delimited file, click the download icon.
Click on the Facets tab to create and edit facets. You can create as many facets as you want, but only the first ~5 will be visible in the Dashboard.
There are three types of facets. Click on the icon for the facet you wish to create, and select the variable from the dropdown menu.
Click Done when you are finished, and you will be redirected to the Dashboard to run the query and view the facets.
To see each individual facet, click on its thumbnail image at the bottom of the Dashboard. This will take you to the Plot tab.
Here, you can see the visualization in more detail and download a tab-delimited file of the facet's summary data.
