Introducing a More Streamlined, Efficient and Insightful Version of quintly

by Tilo Kmieckowiak on October 10, 2017

Since the beginning of this year, the whole team has been working hard on a new version of quintly – and it’s available to everyone now. The updated software provides a more streamlined user experience while also offering a vastly refined user interface that will help you take your social media analytics process even further.


“Today we are happy to make our new tool version available to all paid customers. With a strong focus on usability and a new way to explore ready-made metrics and dashboards, it is a huge step forward and forms a strong base for future enhancements.”

Frederik Born, CTO of quintly

We implemented various improvements in the tool, enhancing its overall performance and usability. For those who have been with us for a while now, we made sure that you will still have a familiar experience with quintly while we offer a freshly refined design and new features. Also, the tool runs lightning fast now, offers optimized navigation and gives your dashboards more space, making your daily work more hassle free. You will notice many of the more obvious additions quickly, while there are many further adjustments just under the hood – and it's all fully customizable! 

And before we show you all the new stuff in detail, here is an overview of the features:




Dig Deeper and Find Insights That Are Relevant to You

At quintly, close cooperation with our clients defines everyday business. We are always committed to help them achieve their goals using our social media analytics solution. But besides, it gives us the opportunity to better get to know their needs and improve our product accordingly.

Customization plays a big role for our product, as we believe that there is no one size fits all approach to analytics. Both quintly users and us in-house have created amazing metrics that fit specific challenges and dig very deep into data since the introduction of the quintly Query Language (QQL).

However, up until now, there was no easy way to share these custom metrics with other users who might benefit greatly from them.

Explore New Metrics and Dashboards with the Discover Page

This is why we have introduced a new page within quintly - the Discover page. It is the place to go to search for our 500+ default metrics, but also to discover new metrics. We curate these new metrics for you on an ongoing basis. Besides, you can also find popular metrics among other quintly users. This can help you get new impulses for optimizing your own social media analytics approach.

We have also implemented a way to find new pre-made dashboard templates. From now on, you can explore new challenge and goal oriented dashboards on the discover page. Are you looking for a dashboard that is perfect for content optimization through benchmarking? Or a dashboard for detailed video content analysis? You’ll find it on the Discover page! After you found the right dashboard, click on save dashboard to add it to your dashboard collection.

The Discover page is also where you can find any already existing metrics for a specific network. So if you want to get an overview of all available Facebook metrics, just choose Facebook as the social network and you will see them all!

Switch Chart Types Easily

When we create new metrics, we try to choose the best possible data visualization for its purpose. Sometimes, however, you might want to have a different perspective on it and want to change the chart type.

Before, you had to use QQL in the most cases when you wanted to switch chart types. You can now easily choose different types by clicking on the options field in the upper right hand corner of a metric. Then select "Edit settings" and and simply click on the chart type you want to change to. Easy!

Get More Streamlined Dashboard Management with Folders

Especially if you are regularly working on very different challenges, chances might be high that you have to use various dashboards. You could sort them by dragging them up and down before, but now we introduce dashboard folders in the tool. By using these, you can more easily sort your dashboards according to your needed categories. And by the way: It is also now possible to create as many dashboards as you need with any quintly package.

Start Using Instagram Insights That Supports Stories

Another feature that quintly users have been asking for is Instagram Insights support – and voila, it’s now also here! Exclusively to the new version of quintly, we added various metrics that let you draw valuable new conclusions for your Instagram performance.

And the most exciting thing: we also support data for Instagram Stories! You can now analyze all your Stories, no matter if they are still running or have already expired. This gives users the option to also analyze performance historically and uncover important developments and changes.

Getting Started And Working With quintly Has Never Been Easier

We’ve been working hard on optimizing the user experience of our product. The user interface now comes in a cleaner design and uses color to guide you through your measurement process. 

Work More Efficiently with the Notification System and Visual Guidance

Within quintly, you can now see notifications popping up when certain events happen. But no worries, not the kind of annoying notifications that pop up when you don’t need them. For example, when you add a dashboard from the Discover page, a context sensitive notification will pop up that takes you directly to the new dashboard with one click. That’s fast and more convenient!

Benefit from Enhanced Onboarding

All users can now benefit from an enhanced onboarding guide when they access the new version of quintly. This system makes sure that you find out new things as you start using them, not all at once. It also ensures that you get the information you need when we launch new features in the future.



“We have been using quintly for a long time now. While it was always very helpful for us, getting deep valuable data insights is now smoother and more efficient than ever with the new version!”

Katarzyna Jakubowska, Digital Marketing Manager of Huawei

The new quintly version is now available to everyone.
