Filtering out internal page views

For internal viewing, we recommend using the Collaborator preview link. But if you do share the public page URL with internal colleagues, here's how to keep those views out of your analytics.

Note: This feature is only available to Enterprise accounts. Admins will have access to the setup of this feature. 

Adding IP addresses to filter

To get started with this feature you'll want to first find your office IP address (or addresses, if there's more than one). Your network administrator should be able to provide this information, but you can always go to What's My IP to show the IP address registered to your computer. 

Please determine whether you have a static IP or a dynamic one. A static IP will only need to be entered once. A dynamic IP will change over time, and you'll need to update the filter whenever the IP changes. Again, your network administrator should be able to provide that information.

Step 1. Click on your initials in the top right corner of Qwilr. Head to Account Settings → Account. Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Office IP Filters section.

Step 2. Click on the + sign to add a new filter. From there you'll see two fields. Add in a name for your IP so you can identify it, and the IP address itself. Then click Update IP Filters

If you have additional IP addresses to add, repeat the process.

Enabling the Filter IP setting

Once you've added your office IP addresses, you'll be able set any Qwilr Page so that it ignores internal views. You'll need to enable this setting on each page where you want to exclude internal views.

Step 1. Click on the Share button for the page you want to edit, either from the dashboard or from the editor. 

Step 2. In the pop-up that appears, click Other settings

Step 3. From there, enable the Enable IP Filtering switch, and then you'll see a list of the IP addresses that have been entered in your settings. (If no IPs have been entered yet, you'll see a link to the Settings page to add them.) 

Choose the IP address you want to restrict and you're done. Analytics will no longer track views on the public URL that come from that IP address.
