In “Controling the Woopra Live Visitor Stream Data,” we showed you how to control what you see in the Woopra Desktop Client’s Live Panel in the live visitor stream. Let’s look closer at how you can filter out the data to pause and focus the real-time data on a specific visitor or group of visitors with the data you are seeking.
To select a visitor and pause them in the live visitor stream, simply click the visitor name in the Live Stream or their name in the left visitor list panel. This removes the rest of the visitor’s from the list, allowing you to focus on a specific visitor. To return the Live Panel to all visitors, click the X at the upper right corner of the panel.
With one visitor selected, note that their visitor ID is in the top Quick Filter bar with the magnifying glass. When you reset the filter, it is blank. This is called a Quick Filter.
Woopra offers a variety of quick filters for the Live Panel to narrow down the data to the specific information you need. Want to know how many people are using Firefox as their browser on your site right now? Want to see how many people are visiting you from France? Just type in the quick filter to restrict the data in the Live Panel to what you are interested in at the moment.

In the left side of the Woopra Live Panel you will see a list of your visitors by Visitor ID. On that section of the panel are buttons to click to quickly filter the live visitor stream by visitor ID, country, pages, referrers, platforms, and browsers. Click on any of the items in the list to quickly filter the live visitor stream to that item, such as Browser > Safari 4 or Country > Turkey.
