If you choose to log in using your Digital Analytics credentials, you will need your client ID and Digital Analytics username and password. This information is provided when the user account is created in the user management. If needed, you can reset the password for this account by clicking the "Forgot password" button.
You can also log in with an Acoustic ID. This is the same set of credentials you can use when logging into other Acoustic products or when accessing extensions like the support and ideas portals. When logging with an Acoustic ID for the first time, you’ll need to link it to your Digital Analytics credentials. You can link your Acoustic ID to one Digital Analytics client ID.

If you're a federated customer, you can also log in with your company's credentials. For more information about federation, see Get started with federation.
For security purposes, Acoustic allows 3 attempts to log in with your Acoustic ID before it's locked for an hour. When logging in with your Digital Analytics account, after 3 incorrect attempts are made to log in, a password reset email will be sent to the email associated with that account.
Toggling between different client IDs
After logging into Digital Analytics, you can switch between client IDs that you have permission to access. To switch client IDs, click "Switch client ID" at the top of the left configuration panel. All the client IDs that you have access to are shown in the list, and after selecting the ID you’d like to switch to, the interface will reload with the data specific to that client ID.
Standard and Ad-hoc reports
Digital Analytics provides both standard reports and ad-hoc reporting capabilities that you can use to analyze the activity on your site. Standard reports are organized into various workspaces within the Standard Workspaces section. Ad-hoc reports live in the My Workspaces section and are organized based on the workspaces that you define.

Standard reports are pre-configured and pre-processed reports. They provide data on marketing, content, conversion events, systems, demographics, search terms, and more.
You can engage with these reports in the following ways:
- add/remove available metrics
- apply segments and filters
- display trends for different time periods, including hourly (enabled for some reports, like Top Line Metrics), daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly
- export or schedule for recurring email delivery
- compare two different date ranges and/or segments
- save any modifications to views so you can return to specific versions of a report
Ad-hoc reports are customized reports that you build and generate on your own. You select the exact breakouts, metrics, segments, filters, etc. to apply that fits the use case you need to analyze. There are a variety of report types to select from, including:
- A flat list: shows data in a flat structure and is ideal for analyzing a large data set.
- Hierarchy: shows values for one display column based on the value of another display column. For example, you can view the most popular brands in each product category with a hierarchy report.
- Custom group: creates expandable groups using advanced filter logic. Choose various filters to act as categories and see dimensional values and the associated metrics that relate to that specific category upon expanding.
- Segment compare: allows you to analyze and compare visitor segments against your key performance indicators.
- True path: shows visitor behavior along defined paths on your website.
- Click stream: displays paths that visitors take through your website before or after they visit a page.
