The Mentions List is a great way to provide an overview of your mentions in a full list format that you can scroll through, similar to your Feed. Integrating this list into your Reports will allow you to enhance the qualitative data for you and your colleagues to examine.

There are two methods to adding a list to your report:

  • The Insights Center

  • 'Edit Mode' in your Reports

Insights Center:

In the Insights Center, you can integrate a Mentions List by following these steps:

  1. Choose the alert for your Mentions List.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of the drop-down menu for segmentations and you will find the option titled Mentions.

  3. You have the option of modifying the module with specific filters such as time period, sources, languages, and more! This step is completely optional.

  4. Once you are all set with your list, please go to the top right of your page and click on the Save button. A popup window with your current Reports will appear.

  5. Please click on the report you would like to add the graph to or you can create a completely new Custom Report as well. Once the report is chosen, you can add a title to your new module!

From there, your list will be completely integrated into to the report you chose!

'Edit Mode' in Reports:

You also have the option to directly add the module through 'Edit Mode'. First, you must open the report that you would like to add the list to. Once opened, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the top right and click on 'Edit Mode'.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of your Report and click on the "Add Module" button. From there, the module options and filters will appear on the right side of your page.

  3. Click on add alert and apply the alert for the list. Next, click on Mentions for your segmentation option. The rest of the information will auto-populate once these two options are defined.

  4. You also have the option of modifying the filters by switching to the filters tab on the top of the page. This step is optional.

  5. If you would like to move the module, you can click and drag the module to any section of your report as well. This step is optional.

  6. Once everything is set, you can click on Save Report.

Your report will take a moment to save and then you will see the module embedded into the Report!

Clarifications:

❗You can only choose 1 alert for the Mentions List module. If you want to use multiple alerts, please create multiple Mentions List modules in your reports.

❗ The Mentions List module is only available for Data Reports. You cannot apply a module to a Social Analytics Report.


Information for PDF Exports

Once you have all of the data together in one report, you can also export it whenever you would like as well. There are some specifications you should be aware of for these exports. The option to export a Report that has a Mentions List is broken down into two options:

Export Full Mentions List:

In your Edit Mode tab, there is an option to export the full list of mentions from the module. Toggling this button will allow you to view each mention individually in the PDF file you download.

This is your Report in the Mention website:

This is the view of the list in PDF format when you export it:

Clarifications:

❗This option only works for PDF exports

❗This option will only show you the most recent 1000 mentions. Utilizing filters for your list will help you shorten the number of mentions.

Export the Mentions List Module:

If you do not want to export the entire list of mentions , you do not have to either! If the option to export the full list is turned off, Mention will only export the module in the same way you view it in your Report dashboard.

Instead of a full list, your PDF export will show the condensed module with the option to click on 'view all mentions' . If you click on this hyperlink, the PDF will bring you to Mention's web page to view your report directly on the website.
