The essentials


In Steam Data Suite the main menu on the left has 2 levels;

  1. Furthest on the left are the solutions. Clicking on a solution displays the solution menu
  2. The solution menu contains all links to pages and dashboards within the solution.

Additionally, within Steam Data Suite, you will find references from tables or cards that lead to relevant pages.

Every page on Steam Data Suite also has a sidebar on the right. This can be expanded and collapsed using the Info & Articles button at the top right. The sidebar contains handy tips about the page, relevant articles and references to further assistance.


Most pages contain filters. These provide an easy interface to change the content you’re seeing within the page. Some filters are dashboard specific, some you will find on many dashboards.

Common filters

  • Game; allows switching between games (single select)
  • Games; allows to make a selection of games to include (multi select)
  • Interval; allows to change the reporting interval, or interval used in graphs. This can be set to day, week, month or year.
  • Period; Allows to select the time period. Click once to select the start date, and again to select the end date.

Filter presets

For filters that allow for selecting multiple values, it’s possible to create presets. These make it easy to switch between selections you often make.

To create a preset click Create preset when the filter is expanded. Then type a name for the preset, check boxes for all items you would like to include in the preset and then click the checkmark.

To edit a preset click the pencil besides the preset you would like to change, then change the name and/or selected items. Then click the checkmark to store the change.


KPI cards often visualize one particular KPI and are frequently found throughout reporting features of Steam Data Suite. They can contain;

  • The name of the KPI at the top
  • A question mark icon. Clicking that shows more details about the specific KPI.
  • The value itself.
  • A delta. This illustrates the change compared to the same length period before the active one.
  • A reference to a detail report for further analysis.
  • A graph illustrating the change of the KPI value throughout the selected timeframe.


Tables come in many shapes and sizes, but use similar functionality throughout Steam Data Suite.
  • Each column has a header describing the content in that column. Click the question mark besides it to get more info about the column.
  • Clicking the header of a column allows you to sort by that column. Columns that allow sorting can be recognized by the chevron when hovering over them. Clicking again on the header of a column that currently is sorted on reverses the sorting.
  • Some columns have a search field below the column head. This allows to further narrow down what is displayed in the table. Note: in some cases filtering the table also impacts what data is included in the rest of the page.
  • Below all table data you will find the table footer. this contains totals and averages for some columns. To see which values are totals, and which are averages click the question mark in the cell.


Graphs consist of;

  • A title of the graph, explaining what you’re looking at.
  • The content of the graph. Hovering over any of the lines will show you the value for that line and moment.
  • Blue bars below the graph. They represent relevant events that may impact the visualised performance. They are configured through the events module. Graphs that cover multiple games show global events, graphs that cover one game show that games specific events.
  • Legend at the bottom. Clicking an item in the legend hides that line from the graph. It also adjusts the axes to the active values. This can help amplify changes to datasets with lower values.

Page actions

At the top right of every page are page specific actions, visualized as buttons. This allows you to create new entries or manage settings relevant for the page. Two buttons are frequently placed here as well;
  • Email alerts; clicking this shows a screen to configure email alerts relevant to the page.
  • Info & articles; toggles showing of the right sidebar that contains page specific information and references to documentation and help.
