The Litterati Partner Dashboard is where partners can find all their Litterati information. Everything from a quick account summary to challenge information and reports to administrative tools.
This article will show you a brief overview of all the aspects of the Partner Dashboard and break down the different menu sections.
Section 1 - Anatomy of the Partner Dashboard
When you first log in to the Dashboard, you'll land on the Summary Dashboard. This is the account total for everything that is going on in your account. Here are the different parts of the Dashboard:
1 - Account Switcher - View personal account statistics, or switch to an Admin account from this drop-down menu.
2 - Menu Bar - Navigate between Summary Dashboard, Challenge Dashboard, Reports, and More.
3 - Total Pieces Collected - Total pieces collected under the entire account, including any Connected Challenges attached to any of your Featured Challenges.
4 - Activity Calendar - Shows account activity over the year, sorted by month. Previous years can be filtered as well
5 - Top Contributors - Shows a leaderboard for the entire account. Can be filtered by date.
6 - Total Category Tags - Shows the litter composition across the entire account. This data is based on tags provided by participants.
7 - Litter Map - Shows all the litter locations of pieces collected for the entire account. Anything off the coast of Africa in the middle of the Atlantic is for people who've turned off location sharing. It's showing items there because it is Latitude and Longitude 0,0.
Section 2 - Challenges
In the Challenges tab, is where all the account challenges can be found. The list of challenges may change depending on what subsequent tab is selected: Active, Featured, Connected, Local, Archived, and All. Here's a breakdown of each section:
Active - Displays only challenges that are active currently.
Featured - Displays only Featured challenges (Engage Partners only).
Connected - Displays either Connected Challenges that have been made on the account or challenges connected to a Featured Challenge made on the account (Engage Partners only).
Local - Displays only local challenges made on the account.
Archived - Displays challenges that have ended either by an admin or if it has reached the end date.
All - Displayed a totality of all challenges created or attached to this account.
This is also where admins can create challenges. For a more in-depth guide on creating challenges please visit this article: How To - Create Challenges Through The Desktop Dashboard
To view a specific challenge dashboard, click on the title of the challenge. That will bring up that specific challenge's dashboard to view more information about how that specific challenge is doing or has done.
Section 3 - Reports
Reports are a great way to gather more knowledge about the data found in challenges and the litter that has been collected under the account.
The reporting tool has many options for you to narrow down the account data for review. A report can be narrowed down by adding different filters to the report pull. However, leaving a section blank, means that everything in that section will be included.
Here's a quick breakdown of the different sections of the reports:
Challenges - A drop-down list of all the challenges and challenge types in the account.
Users - A list of all the participants that have collected on at least one of your challenges.
Start Date - the start date for the report pull, this can be cleared along with the end date to pull a totality of the account.
End Date - The end date of the report pull.
Tags - The list of tags that participants have added to their litter
Tag Source - There are two options, Litterati and User Generated.
Litterati has been filtered through the AI and has been adjusted for things like misspellings, alternate names, and similar tags.
User Generated is the raw tags as input by participants. While this could be more accurate in description, this also can create more irregularities between similar tags.
Country - Data can be isolated to a specific country if you have a worldwide feature challenge
City - City is also a filter if the challenge radius is large enough to encompass a city.
Zipcode - Similar to the city, Zipcode is also a filter if the challenge radius is large enough to encompass an entire zipcode.
Radius - If looking for a larger area that overlaps multiple cities, increasing the radius will ensure that a larger area is covered.
By clicking on "Generate Report" the total tag results will show up in an easy-to-view line chart separated by their Category, Object, Material, and Brand. The table is interactive and the different parts can be clicked on to reveal more data.
To download that data into a spreadsheet, simply click the "Download CSV" button to do so. In that report, all the account data will be organized by their Litter ID or the photo's unique identification number. The columns then provide more information on that specific litter id. It's broken down into Litter ID, Challenge Name, Category Tag, Object Tag, Material Tag, Brand Tag, Latitude, Longitude, Display Name, Username, Date/Time, Country Code, Image URL, and Join code.

Section 4 - Segments, Analysis, and Research Management
This section is for partners who have an Analyze package with Litterati. However, using these features is depended on how your package was set up.
Since most of the Analyze packages are a bit more bespoke, we'll be skipping this section in this article.
Section 5 - Resources
This section is designed to help partners communicate and share their challenges with their community. There are links to our FAQs page, Marketing Kit with our logo, How-To Videos, and other useful information.
However, our help.litterati.org page is more up-to-date with similar information.
Section 6 - Admin
This section allows owners and administrators to manage their accounts depending on the type of package they have purchased. In this section, owners can invite new admins or add subaccounts (if applicable).
From the Admin page, an owner can search, add, or remove admins to the account. Typically admins are added to the account if there is a need to report daily, weekly, or monthly activity on the account. If not, usually fewer admins are better as they all have equal access to account features.
If your license provides a subaccount, this is where those subaccounts are managed.
For a more in-depth guide on how to add a subaccount, please click here: How To: Add a Subaccount to Your Partner Account.
Please note: To create a subaccount a user must already exist but not be an admin to any other account within Litterati. This means that one user account cannot be an admin to two different accounts. In this case, a user will have to have two separate accounts tied to those two separate partners.
This was a quick summary of the Partner Dashboard. Please connect with your Client Success Manager if you need a more in-depth overview of any section.
