Using the TINT Dashboard

The TINT Dashboard is where you can view and manage your TINTs, Analytics, InsTINT Updates, TINTmix, Collaborators, Settings, and Payment. There’s a lot you can do in the Dashboard, so let’s get started!

Usage Statistics - For embedded TINTs, clicking the chevron icon beside a TINT name will display a URL to the page(s) it is embedded on, as well as basic usage statistics:

* Current Viewers and Viewers in Past 24 Hours numbers are calculated in non-unique pageviews *
