Variable configuration features are available to workspace administrators only. Editors can review workspace variables and access some information about them. However, only workspace administrators can monitor to whom the variables have been assigned.
A variable enables workspace administrators to assign dynamic numerical or attribute values to individual users in a workspace.
- A numerical variable enables a numerical value assigned to individual users. For example, you can assign sales commission rates to individual workspace users so that they can see accurate information on the My Compensation dashboard.
- A filtered variable assigns attribute values to individual users. For example, you can assign all Sales reps in the eastern U.S. to Region=East. This filtered variable then permits the assigned reps to see data only from their region.
For more information on variables, see Using Variables to Control Data Visibility.
To access the variables in your workspace:
- Click Manage on the toolbar. The administration page opens.
- On the Data tab, click Variables. The list of all workspace variables opens.
