Mobile Data Types and Filters

You work with mobile data types and filters to define the mobile traffic information that you want to view in a dashboard or report widget or when analyzing charts in Analytics > Mobile Insights.

When you add or edit a widget in a dashboard or report and select Mobile in the Widget Settings dialog, you select a data type to view from the Data Type menu and apply filters that you choose from the Add Filter menu.
