​In the realm of software engineering metrics, it's not uncommon for individuals who didn't create a particular metric to struggle with understanding how it has been calculated, why it matters, and how to improve it. This lack of clarity can hinder effective decision-making and impede progress within an organization. That's why documenting metrics is key to ensuring that everyone involved has a comprehensive understanding of the metric's purpose, calculation, and potential areas for improvement.

In this article, we’ll show you how to access and modify your metrics’ documentation.

1. To access any metric's documentation, click on the question mark (?) button located next to the insight title.

2. This will open a tooltip that contains all the information about the insight. Keypup's metric templates come with default documentation that provides information about the insight and how it’s calculated, as well as tips to improve the metric. 

3. To modify the metric's documentation, click on the edit (...) button located at the top right of the insight.

4. Then, select "Edit insight."

5. Click on the "Document insight" section of the left navigation panel.

6. From there, you can edit your documentation one-liner description as well as the full documentation to meet your organization’s needs and processes.
