  3. In the Public categories list, select Interaction History.
  4. Click the Interaction History report.
    The report shows the Interaction History records in the form of a table. By default, the report is filtered to only include results from the past 30 days.
  5. Click Edit report.
  6. To change the time frame for the report, for example, from monthly to weekly, in the Filtered by section, click Period, and then click Select values.
  7. To add more data to the report, drag and drop columns from the Data Explorer.
  8. To remove the columns which are not relevant for the report, click the Open menu icon by the column that you want to remove, and then click Delete, as in the following figure:

  10. Configure the report filters to exclude irrelevant results.
    For example, if your Next-Best-Action business structure includes an issue which represents service messages and regulatory communications, actions related to this issue should be excluded from the results of this report, as they do not represent your marketing portfolio items.
    1. In the Data Explorer section of the report, find the item which corresponds to the type of data that you want to filter out.
      For example, to find the Issue item, click More > Action Dimensions > Issue.
    2. Drag and drop the item into the Filtered by section of the report.
    3. Edit the filter settings, as in the following figure:
