Collecting Spotlight scores

You can collect daily scores for records included in Spotlight groups, or use real-time scores.

You can configure a Spotlight group to automatically collect scores every day by selecting the Schedule Daily check box on the Spotlight Group form. To configure when scheduled data collection occurs, navigate to Spotlight > Spotlight Job and change the Time field value. All Spotlight groups configured for daily collection run at the configured time.

To collect scores for records in a single Spotlight group immediately, navigate to Spotlight > Spotlight Groups, select the Spotlight group you want to collect scores for, then click Run Spotlight. The Spotlight job runs as the user who performs the task and only returns the scores that user has permission to access.
Important: Before you can collect Spotlight scores, the Performance Analytics daily collection job must run for the Spotlight group Main indicator.

To immediately collect scores for all Spotlight groups, navigate to Spotlight > Spotlight Job and click Execute Now.

When you collect new Spotlight scores, the Active field is set to false for existing Spotlight scores.

You can configure a Spotlight group to use real-time scores instead of using collected scores. To enable real-time scores, clear the Use Snapshot check box on the Spotlight Group form. Using real-time data requires additional system resources to query the indicator data.
Note: When using real-time data, certain conditions are not available. See Create a spotlight group for details.
