When you've set up URIports for your reporting needs, you'll receive many reports when violations or errors are triggered. These reports can sometimes clutter your view. That's why we've built features in your URIports account that allow you to hide or block reports that are not important or cannot be fixed, so only important reports will be visible. Lets find out how you can easily use these features.
There are three options for you to choose from: Hiding reports, ignoring reports and blocking reports. I'll explain each option, they all look alike but each has it's own super powers.
First up, hiding reports! Let's say you have a report like the highlighted line in the image below. When you've fixed the issue on your site, you can easily hide the report from your view. It's like checking an item from your to-do list 😊. Click the small arrow next to the Inspect-button and choose the option "Hide". All corresponding reports will be immediately hidden from your view. You can always show your hidden reports flipping the "Show hidden" switch. When viewing your hidden reports, you can also "Unhide" reports.
Okay, lets say you're receiving reports for something you cannot fix at this moment in time or the content is not really interesting. You can set up an ignore rule so new received reports are automatically marked as hidden. Ignored reports are processed by our systems and algorithms, but are marked as hidden so they don't appear in your default view. You won't receive notifications about ignored reports. You can view these reports when flipping the "Show hidden" switch.
When you receive reports of things you cannot fix like when site visitors that use extensions or anti-virus programs that inject code etc. you can set up a block rule. It works the same as ignoring, but we'll drop the report immediately when we receive it and will not process it. Blocked reports aren't visible in your account.
Fair Use Policy
Blocked reports will not count towards your monthly quota, but to ensure that our service runs smoothly, we apply a fair use policy for blocking reports. Blocked reports have to be processed by our system to check whether they have to be blocked. The current fair use policy is 20% of your quota. So if you have a subscription with 500,000 reports, you can block 100,000 reports every month. It is possible that the fair use policy will change unannounced in the future. When you exceed the fair use policy limit, it is possible that newly blocked reports will count towards your monthly quota. Unactionable violations, like the 'abandoned'-network error are never counted towards your quota or fair use policy.
We automatically block reports that are unactionable like well-known browser extensions so they don't clutter your view or burn through your monthly quota.
Editing Ignore and Block Rules
To edit your rules, go to your URIports account and go to your settings by clicking the cog-wheel in the top right. You'll find your rules in the section "Ignore and block rules".
That's it! Hopefully these tips will unclutter your view so you only see the most relevant and actionable reports in your account.
