Before you can change the license assigned to a user, you must remove the assigned license, delete the related user account in Social Engagement, and create a new account for the user. Removing the license of a user from Social Engagement deletes all related custom settings, alerts, and any owned or shared streams.

If you want the user to still have access to other applications that you manage through Office 365, for example Microsoft Exchange Online or Microsoft SharePoint, don't delete the user. Instead, simply remove the Social Engagement license you've assigned to the user. 23

More information: Manage your post quota 1. Navigate to Search setup. 2. In the list of search topics, select the search topic to add a rule to. 3. Choose the Add rule button.

Add a keywords rule Create rules from keywords, inclusions, and exclusions and define the sources and languages you want the rule to search on. This is the common way to define a rule in a search topic and usually results in a significant amount of posts. 47

48 1. Navigate to Search Setup. 2. Choose the search topic you want to add the rule to. Optionally, you can create a new search topic. 3. Under RULES, choose Add new rule button. The ADD RULE page appears. 4. Choose Keywords rule. 5. Enter the keywords; select the inclusions, exclusions, and the filters that you want to use when searching for posts. 6. Choose Continue in the ADD RULE pane to add the rule to the search topic. Important The solution checks the quota availability for the new rule, and prompts you accordingly. If your quota can t accommodate the new rule, you can t save it. 7. In the search topic pane, choose the Save button to activate your rule. Add keywords to search for Keywords define the words and phrases to listen for. Keywords are exact but not case-sensitive. We recommend that you include variations of the keywords. For example, if you put phone and the term that appears in a post is phones, your result won t be selected by the search rule, and won t show up in your analysis. For each keyword, the comma serves the function of OR. If you have added more than one search term, your search rule looks to find at least one of the listed terms. Also, think about adding acronyms and common contractions. It s important to review keywords regularly. If your keywords yield too many results, think about narrowing the search rule by adding inclusions and exclusions or reducing the number of keywords. More information: Refine your search rules Note that sentiment analysis in Social Engagement is target-specific. A post s sentiment value always refers to the keywords of a search rule only. For example, if you re looking for sentiment values about your brand, make sure to add your brand name as keywords. For example, let s assume you want to listen to posts about a product, manufactured by Contoso. You could add the keywords to a search rule like this: Product name, #prodname, Name of the product. All posts that mention one of these keywords will result from the search rule. Add inclusions to a keywords rule Narrow down your search so you get a much higher quality selection of posts and results. Think of inclusions as the word AND. Your search will be filtered so that posts are selected only if 48

49 they contain at least one of the keywords AND at least one of the inclusions. Inclusions aren t case-sensitive. When listening to posts about a product, you want to make sure the posts relate to a product in the manufacturer s portfolio. Consider adding different spellings of the brand or company name to find posts that mention Contoso s product. For example, you could add something like this to the inclusions: #contoso, All posts that mention one of the keywords and one of the inclusions are now found by this search rule. When you set up your search rule, you can choose from the following options to decide how close a keyword and an inclusion must appear in a post: Sentence: Keywords and inclusions must appear in the same sentence. Paragraph: Keywords and inclusions must appear in the same paragraph. Post: Keywords and inclusions must appear in the same post. We recommend starting with the default option (paragraph). If your search topic yields too many irrelevant results, try narrowing it to the proximity in a sentence. Note that this may also remove relevant posts because all combinations of inclusions and keywords outside of a sentence will no longer be picked up by the keywords rule. Inclusions are an efficient way to reduce the number of posts resulting from your search, and are a great way to make sure you stay within your quota. Exclude terms from a keywords rule Sometimes a specific word or phrase can overwhelm your results with irrelevant posts. With exclusions, you can narrow down your searches and improve your results. Enter the words to exclude, separated by commas, and your searches will ignore posts containing these terms. Exclusions aren t case-sensitive. For every term you add to the exclusions, your search will be filtered so that posts won t be selected if they match one of the keywords but contain any of the added exclusion in the same post. Think of exclusions as the term AND NOT. For example, let s assume you re not interested in discounts or offers around Contoso s product. To avoid results that contain either discounts or offers, add the terms to the search rule s exclusions. All posts that mention at least one of the exclusions in the same post as a keyword will no longer result from this rule. To exclude multiple terms from appearing with a keyword, the exclusions must be added to the same search rule. If one rule searches for "Contoso" while excluding "discounts" and another rule searches for "Contoso" while excluding "offers", the search topic will select all posts mentioning "Contoso" that don t contain both "discounts" and "offers". Whereas if a query searches for "Contoso" while excluding "discounts, offers," it excludes all posts mentioning "Contoso" that don t contain either "discounts" or "offers". 49

50 Tip You can exclude terms from all active search rules at once by adding a term to the list of blocked content. More information: Manage the quality of your search results Exclusions are an efficient way to reduce the number of posts resulting from your search, and a great way to make sure you stay within your post quota. Choose your exclusions carefully to avoid missing relevant posts. Handle special characters in keywords, inclusions, and exclusions Exact searches are critical to successful social listening. Special characters are often used in brand or product names in the form of connectors. Social Engagement interprets the special characters +, &, /, and - as separate entities in a search rule. For example: Searching for the term City Power & Light will result in posts that mention this term in all combinations of whitespaces. Posts that contain either of the following terms (not case-sensitive) will be picked up by the search: City Power & Light (whitespaces before and after the special character) City Power& Light (whitespace after the special character) City Power &Light (whitespace before the special character) City Power&Light (no whitespaces before and after the special character) Additional special characters for Twitter Authors on Twitter regularly use #hashtags, $stocktweets Use the special characters for Twitter if you want to search explicitly for #hashtags, $stocktweets, Social Engagement interprets those terms as unique entities when added to a search rule. For example, searching for the term #contoso will only find results that contain the exact match of the hashtag. Limitations on topic names, keywords, inclusions, and exclusions Although you can create an unlimited number of search queries per search topic, there is a limit on the length and number of terms. Maximum length, in characters, of search topic names: 35. Maximum length, in characters, per keyword, inclusion, and exclusion: 128. Maximum number of keywords per search rule: 15. Maximum number of inclusions per search rule: 15. Maximum number of exclusions per search rule:

Usually, you follow conversations on a Facebook page in full context and don t look at specific posts only.

Privacy notices Microsoft Social Engagement offers hosted online services available to a wide variety of customers and is comprised of the following social capability components within the software application: Social Media Monitoring ability to listen to and monitor publicly available social communications across public and managed networks administered by third parties. Social Analytics ability to identify, compute, and project queries related to publicly available documents and posts. Please note that Microsoft Social Engagement may enable access to third-party services, such as Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and blogs whose privacy practices may differ from Social Engagement. Your use of such services, and any information you provide to them, is governed by their service-specific privacy statements. You are encouraged to review these other privacy statements. You are also encouraged to review the Microsoft Online Services Terms. Microsoft Social Engagement stores customer search configurations and data curations in tenant-separated databases (customer data). The customer data is then cached on the server side in an internal application, to allow common retrieval indexing for the sole purpose of maximizing solution performance. 53

54 Access to index cached data (customer data) is handled exclusively by the internal application, and does not allow users to access or modify index cached data interactively in the internal application. After a subscription license agreement is terminated, customer index cached data is removed after a period of 180 days, according to our data retention policies. For every new or changed search topic configuration we run an initial estimation with Bing Social to assess the amount of posts we will acquire with your provided search topic configuration. For this purpose your keywords, inclusions, exclusions, and applied language filters will be submitted to Bing Social. See Also Set up searches to listen to social media conversations Create or delete a search topic Manage your post quota Get started with Social Engagement Refine your search rules Analyze your results and optimize your search queries regularly to make sure you get the most relevant data. Your searches may return posts that are irrelevant in the context you are looking for. For example, if you want to search for the Microsoft Windows operating system and have Windows as your search keyword, you are likely to find results about house windows. In this case, consider adding inclusions like OS or similar terms to make sure you re searching for the operating system. Tip This topic is part of a walkthrough on how you can set up searches. More information: Set up searches to listen to social media conversations Terms and sources change. New abbreviations may gain popularity, or news about your topic will be defined in a different way with different words. A recommended approach is to read carefully through new and important posts to identify emerging topics or changes in wording. Note You need to be a Social Engagement Administrator or Power Analyst to perform this task. 54

55 1. Navigate to Search Setup. 2. In the list of search topics, find the topic you want to refine and select the list entry. 3. Review your keywords, inclusions, and exclusions. Add synonyms, alternative spellings, typos, abbreviations, and the singular or plural forms of your terms. 4. Choose the Save button to save your edits and the updated search topic. Using the updated rules, Social Engagement starts searching for posts immediately after you saved the changed search topic. You ll see the first results from the updated rules after a few minutes, when you set the analysis time frame to Today in Analytics. To see the newly acquired posts, open the Posts view. Note Once you have updated a search topic, existing posts that matched the former configuration will persist in the database but your analytics will adapt to the updated configuration. It may take a few hours to reflect the changes in the existing data. In addition to refining your search rules, you can block the data acquisition for certain terms or domains by adding items to Blocked Content.

56 Create or delete a search topic Set up searches to listen to social media conversations Manage the quality of your search results You can perform quality management over the entire application by blocking irrelevant posts and sources. Note As an Administrator or a Power Analyst, you can add terms to the list of blocked content to delete the matching posts in your analysis, or block entire domains from the data acquisition and delete already acquired posts from these domains. Posts that are deleted from your solution are deducted from your monthly post quota. Tip This topic is part of a walkthrough on how you can set up searches. More information: Set up searches to listen to social media conversations Block domains from your sources To improve the quality of your organization s data, you can block URLs that aren t required. You can add URLs and partial URLs to a blocked sources list that will be excluded from data acquisition and analysis. Posts that were already acquired from a source on your blocked list are deleted from the database 4 hours after you added the domain to the list. In the meantime, posts from this source are hidden. For example, you find multiple posts from a specific blog with irrelevant content or spam. Instead of deleting every post manually from your analysis, you can add the blog URL to the blocked sources list. Even if future posts on that blog match your keywords, they won t show up in your analysis. When you're not interested in posts from a specific domain, add the domain to the list of blocked domains. Important You must remove a source from the blocked list to start the data acquisition for that source again. View blocked domains Every user can review the list of blocked domains to find out which URLs are blocked from data acquisition. 56

57 1. Navigate to Search Setup > Blocked Content. 2. Review the list in the DOMAINS pane. Block a domain from your searches When you re not interested in posts from a specific domain, add the domain to the list of blocked sources. Note You need to be a Social Engagement Administrator or Power Analyst to perform this task. Important When you add a domain to the list of blocked domains, posts from this domain will be hidden in Analytics for 4 hours and get deleted irreversibly afterwards. 1. Navigate to Search setup > Blocked Content. 2. In the DOMAINS pane, enter the domain or partial domain in the field. 3. Choose Add icon. Warning Blocking a top-level domain also excludes all of its subdomains. For example, if you exclude contoso.com, the subdomain shop.contoso.com is also excluded. Blocking domains can have a severe impact on the data you already acquired. Whenever you add a domain to the list of blocked content, all posts found on the blocked domain, including subdomains, will be removed from your database after a grace period of 4 hours. Remove a domain from the list of blocked sources Reactivate the data acquisition from a blocked source by removing the domain from the list. Note You need to be a Social Engagement Administrator or Power Analyst to perform this task. 57

58 1. Navigate to Search setup > Blocked Content. 2. Identify the source you want to remove from the list and re-enable for data acquisition and choose Delete icon. 3. In the confirmation message, choose CONFIRM. 4. The data acquisition for the selected domain will restart. Block keywords and terms from your searches Exclude a specific term (word or phrase) by adding it to the blocked content list. Terms on the blocked content list delete matching posts from the database. Because terms on the blocked content list act as a global exclusion, it s a very efficient way to improve the quality of your data. However, be cautious of unintentionally deleting relevant posts. Posts that don't show up in Analytics because of your blocked content settings don't count towards your post quota. For example, if you re listening to multiple search topics about cars, but don t want to see any posts that mention the keyword insurance, you can add this term to the blocked content list. This deletes all posts that mention insurance and posts that contain this term are no longer acquired by your search topics. View excluded keywords Every user can review the list of blocked content to find out which words or phrases are blocked from data acquisition. 1. Navigate to Search setup > Blocked Content. 2. Review the list of excluded keywords below the text input field. Block keywords from your search results Acting as global exclusions, keywords and phrases you add to the list of blocked content will be deleted from your analysis and already acquired posts are removed from the database. Note You need to be a Social Engagement Administrator or Power Analyst to perform this task. 58

59 Important When you add a keyword to the list of blocked keywords, posts matching this keyword will be hidden in Analytics for 4 hours and get deleted irreversibly afterwards. 1. Navigate to Search setup > Blocked Content. 2. Type the term in the input field. 3. Choose Add icon. Remove a keyword from blocked content Remove a global exclusion and restart the data acquisition for posts matching this keyword by removing a keyword from the blocked content list. Note You need to be a Social Engagement Administrator or Power Analyst to perform this task. Data acquisition restarts after removing a keyword from the list of blocked content. Posts aren t acquired retroactively. 1. Navigate to Search Setup > Blocked Content. 2. Identify the list entry you want to remove from the blocked content and choose Delete icon. 3. In the confirmation message, choose CONFIRM. Manage the data acquisition volume Optimize your search topics regularly. Review the rules to make sure that only relevant data is selected. Validate your rules before saving the search topic to get an impression of how many posts you re expecting for the configuration you provided. Maintain a list of blocked sources to delete matching posts and avoid any posts appearing in your results from the listed domains. When you add a source to the list of blocked sources, posts from this source will be hidden in Analytics for 4 hours and get deleted irreversibly afterwards. Maintain a list of blocked terms to delete matching posts and avoid any posts appearing in your results that match the listed terms. When you add a term to the list of blocked terms, posts matching this term will be hidden in Analytics for 4 hours and get deleted irreversibly afterwards. 59

See Also Set up searches to listen to social media conversations Create or delete a search topic Understand user roles Manage your post quota Keep track of the number of posts that result from your search topics towards your solution's post quota. Your solution is priced based on the number of posts you can acquire per month. Note This topic is part of a walkthrough on how you can set up searches. More information: Set up searches to listen to social media conversations Important If you re expected to exceed the post quota of the current month, you ll get a notification . When you exceed your post quota, data acquisition will be stopped for any of the following reasons: You still exceed your post quota after 48 hours from the time the notification was sent. Your solution passes the temporarily granted additional post quota. For example, if your monthly post quota is 10,000 posts, your grace period starts when you receive a notification that your solution will probably exceed your quota limits. Data acquisition will be stopped automatically after 48 hours if you have exceeded your post quota by then, or as soon as your solution gathered more than 50,000 posts before the 48 hours have passed. To see your state of your current post quota, navigate to Search Setup. The quota period is one calendar month: Start: First day of a month, 00:00 AM. End: Last day of a month, 11:59 PM.

Important Note that Social Engagement doesn t gather posts retrospectively. Any missed post won t appear in your solution if you update your post quota after the acquisition has stopped. Understand estimations On the Summary page in the Search Setup area, you ll find quota information for all active search topics. The following values are provided for each search topic and all categories that contain a search topic: Number of posts: The total number of posts that were acquired during the current calendar month. Monthly expectation: The calculated number of posts that Social Engagement is expecting until the end of the calendar month. When you set up a search topic, you can validate the rules to estimate how their volume affects your post quota.

The easy to understand, visual metrics displayed on these widgets show you what your customers or prospects are saying about your product and services. Identify any issues or appreciations mentioned about your products or services on social media sources. Using this analysis, you can also understand how your team is working towards the social strategies set for your organization. Tip This topic is part of a walkthrough on how you can set up searches and get started with analyzing the resulting data. More information: Set up searches to listen to social media conversations The Analytics area helps you to analyze social data and displays widgets based on the posts resulting from your search topics. Widgets then display the analysis in easy to understand formats such as bar charts, simple curves, or percentages. You can further filter the displayed data to perform more detailed and focused analysis. More information: Get relevant data using filters. Microsoft Social Engagement widgets provide you with drill-down functionalities to narrow your data set. Choose a data point to get a more granular view on the data. More information: Get relevant data using filters 65

66 Important If no posts are available for your organization, widgets display no metrics and an error message. Microsoft Social Engagement supports two types of widgets - Static and Dynamic. Microsoft Social Engagement supports the analytics pages - Overview, Conversations, Sentiment, Locations and Sources. Use Analytics widgets to: See the top conversations across different sources, top phrases, and the languages used. More information: Find out what people are talking about Understand the positive, negative, and neutral sentiment values for your products and services. More information: Understand the public perception using sentiment analysis Check the locations and location groups from where the posts are coming from, and the volume they re bringing in. More information: See the locations for the posts See the top sources, volume of posts on each source, and the sentiments they re bringing in. More information: Analyze the sources for the posts Tip Widgets support intuitive tool tips that provide information about the displayed metrics. To view these tool tips, hover over the widget using the mouse or tap on the widget metric. Define the data set to display on widgets Widgets take the information from your data set that you define by selecting a search topic or category by using the filters. These filters include the locations, keywords, sentiment values, and so on, that you select based on your business requirements. More information: Get relevant data using filters. Note Every user of your organization s social engagement solution can create data sets. However, only Administrators and power analysts can create new search topics. View the trend values Many of the Analytics widgets support display of trend values. The trend value metric gives you a quick grasp over the trends for the posts across different social dimensions. Trend values are displayed for top sources; top languages, top authors, top sources by sentiment, top conversations, top locations, and top cities. The trend icon will be upward, downward, or straight to indicate rising, falling, or steady trend values, respectively. 66

67 Note If not enough historical data is available for a trend value to display, the trend icon is grayed out. When you select a time frame in the filter section, the average number of posts in the last five similar time frames is compared with the number of posts in the current time frame. Trend value is then calculated based on the difference. For example, if you select last week as the time frame for a widget s display, posts for five weeks prior to last week are compared to the last week to calculate the trend value. Static widgets and dynamic widgets The following table explains static and dynamic widgets. Feature Static Widgets Dynamic Widgets Availability on the UI page Consistently displayed. Displayed upon certain conditions. These conditions depend on the analytics page and the selected data set. Note If the current data set doesn t match the conditions for the dynamic widgets, you ll see the following error message There is no data available in this section for your data set. Support filters from analytics page Available on all of the Analytics pages Required permissions for applying filters Yes Yes Every user can apply the filters not a role based permission. Yes Yes Every user can apply the filters not a role based permission. 67

68 Note 1. A widget could be a static widget on an analytics page, and dynamic on the other page. The display and type of a widget depends upon the selected analytics page and the priority of the widget on the selected social dimension. 2. If no data is available in the selected data set, static widgets will show an error message. See Also Perform visual filtering on widgets Understand widgets on the Overview page Get relevant data using filters Using filters, you can slice and dice your data to narrow your analysis to the extent it provides the most relevant view of the data. Imagine a steady stream of data where your search topics define which posts are selected and available for analysis. Filters let you narrow your view of the data to a more restricted data set. If you navigate the application by drilling down into the data, filters are applied and removed automatically. Set a baseline for your analysis with a data set Data sets are an important concept in Microsoft Social Engagement, defining the actual set of posts that your current analysis focuses on. Data sets are used in Analytics, Alerts, and Social Center to allow you the most flexibility for your views on the data. You can create a data set by providing parameters for your analysis focus and the filters. 1. Analysis focus: In the drop-down menu on the left side of the filter section, select All Search Topics, a category of search topics, or a single search topic. This defines which search topics you re interested in. 2. Active filters: In the filter section, set all required filters. You can apply multiple filters to narrow your data set. 68

69 Drill down into data and apply filters from widgets Microsoft Social Engagement widgets provide you with drill-down functionalities to narrow your data set. Choose a data point to get a more granular view on the data. When you navigate the application by drilling down, it redirects you to corresponding pages and updates filters in the filter section. For example, if you choose a data point in a Sources History widget (which spans over more than one day) on Analytics > Sources, the widgets on the Sources page updates with the filter applied for the source you selected and your time frame updates to the time frame of the selected data point. There are many more entry points to drill down into your data. Choose the data points to use the drill-down functionality. More information: Perform visual filtering on widgets Currently supported filters You can edit or remove filters from your analysis at any time and the charts, lists, and key performance indicators (KPIs) will adapt to your selection. Filters you defined persist on the different pages of Analytics and adapt if you drill down into more detailed analysis. Tip Expand the filters to see the options available for each filter. 69
