This article shows you how to create groups of companies to analyze within an existing landscape. We also have articles on creating new landscapes or adding companies to existing landscapes.

Company Set Filters

Company Set filters help you segment your landscapes into sub-groups (by geography, division, top competitors, size, etc.) to filter any analysis in Rival IQ. Company Set filters can be used to do any head-to-head comparison with your Focus Company or to isolate any company within your landscape.

Using Company Set Filter Dropdown

From any page, opening the Company Set filter dropdown displays the list of active filters within the landscape. Selecting a Company Set filter will filter all of the data on the page to include only the companies associated with that filter plus the Focus Company. Selecting a Show Only filter will limit the data to only include the single company selected; it will not include the Focus Company.

Creating and Updating Company Set Filters

Selecting “Manage Company Sets…” opens the Company Set Manager, where you can add and edit Company Sets for subsets of companies. Click “+ Create Company Set” to create a Company Set, then select the companies on the right to include them in the set. Any changes you make here are automatically saved.

You’ll notice that the Focus Company is always included in the analysis to help you compare the focus company to the average for the companies within a set.

If you would like to isolate a single company within your landscape, use the Show Only filter and select a single company, as show below.

Managing Channels

Use the Companies dashboard under Landscape to manage channels that aren’t relevant to a landscape by hiding them from all analysis. It is also helpful to hide any channels you may not want to include in your cross-channel metrics. Don’t worry, we will continue to collect the history for all social handles that are associated with each company even if the channel is toggled off.
