This article is for administrators. If you are a faculty member or student, please see our Resources for Faculty and Staff or Resources for Students section.
As your students and faculty members use ForagerOne, you will be able to monitor different metrics to track activity and engagement through your university. Each tab under Analytics can be filtered by date range and graduation year, with the exception of Faculty Users Breakdown as graduation year does not apply to faculty members.
Selecting the question mark icon (as indicated in the image below) next to each filter will showcase what specific fields are filtered.
For example, in Overview, if you filter by graduation year, this will affect the following fields:
- Breakdown of User Types
- Cumulative student sign-ups
Within all graphs that provide information collected over time, you can click and drag your cursor along the y-axis to zoom into a highlighted portion.

- Bookmarks and Applications: This file indicates which faculty members your students have bookmarked, as well as if they have submitted any applications to their projects.
- Applicant ID: This column lists the applicant ID that is associated with each student. The students can be matched to their ID in the "Student Profile Data" file.
- Faculty ID: This column lists the faculty ID that is associated with each faculty. The faculty members can be matched to their ID in the "Faculty Profile Data" file.

- Saved: Student has begun working on their interest statement and has saved their draft application.
- Submitted: Student has submitted their interest statement.
- Submitted Date: Date at which the student submitted their interest statement. This column is a newer feature, so some older students who may show "Submitted" in their Progress column may not have a corresponding date.
- Research Project ID: This column lists the project ID that is associated with each project. The IDs can be matched to the project in the "Faculty Projects" file. If a student does not have a corresponding ID, this means that they are not applying to a specific project, but instead applying to generally work with a professor.
