Thanks for answering my question, Jennifer. I appreciate your taking the time. A colleague had a different approach. She created a segment (that must be manually updated) that displays metrics for articles published in the past week. Here's a screenshot. Not elegant, but it gets the job done!
My organization publishes multiple articles every day. Is it possible to set up a search or dashboard to see metrics only on articles published in the last 7 days, or the last month? Thanks for any suggestions.
