This User Guide is intended to provide detailed information on most of the critical features and functions of One Model's Labor Market Intel tool (LMI). A very brief LMI Quick Start Guide is also available.

This document contains sections on:

  • LMI Basics

  • Getting Help & Sharing Feedback

  • Using & Saving Filters

  • Creating and Sharing Storyboards

LMI Basics

The LMI site is here:

Logging In
You should have received an email when your access was set up. If needed, reset your password. If you still have issues logging in, use the 'Intercom' icon at bottom right to send us a message or email us at

Home Page and Main Storyboards

After logging in, you will be on the LMI Home Page. From there you will see links to the other storyboards in LMI:

Getting Help & Sharing Feedback

There are two channels for Help and Feedback: Intercom and, of course, email.

The advantage of using Intercom is that you're able to get assistance from right within the LMI tool. At any time, you can select the blue Intercom icon at the bottom right of any LMI page.

In the pop up window you will be able to search for Help documents for LMI (use "LMI" in the search window) and also send a message to our team.

  • Sending a direct message within Intercom: Within Intercom you will be able to send a direct message to our team. These mesaages will be automatically routed to someone who can assist you with LMI specifically. You will receive a reply within the chat window (ideally, while you are still in the tool). You can also leave your email address. We value your feedback so please don't hesitate to use Intercom to provide it!

  • Finding Help documents for LMI and One Model: Within the Intercom window you will see a space labeled “Find your answer now” which will access the One Model documentation library. For LMI-specific documents (including this guide!) you can simply search for “LMI” and links to the relevant documents will appear.

  • Pop-up Messages from One Model team: Intercom provides for 2-way communication, so you will also see some messages popping up from our team that may include welcome messages, updates on enhancements and fixes, and guidance. You can read and dismiss these easily.

  • Email: you can contact us at

Using & Saving Filters

In nearly every situation, you are going to want to be applying filters to the storyboards. The most common dimensions you'll filter by are Location (MSA), Company, and Job Role/Title.

At the top of each storyboard in One Model LMI is a filter bar that looks like this:

  • Making Selections: Hovering over a dimension in the filter bar provides you with some options. Select the magifying glass icon to search the entire dimension or the down arrow to navigate the values manually. Multiple values can be selected. Double selecting a value excludes it. Filters need to be applied by selecting "Apply Filter" before the storyboard is updated.
    Note: wait until the storyboard is fully loaded before applying filters. Failure to do so can result in unfiltered tiles.

  • "Show all" View: Selecting "Show all" will diplay the dimensions and selections vertically instead of horizontally. This view is necessary when you have more than a few filter dimensions selected. When in the "Show all" view, you can much more easily remove selections. "Show less" will collapse back to the standard filter bar.

  • Filtering by Additional Dimensions: You are not limited to the dimensions already displayed in the filter bar! To add additional dimensions to filter by, select the "Show all" view and select the box that says "Type to add a filter dimension". The additional dimension will then be added to the list below and selections can be made.

  • Saving Filters: To save a particular filter for future use, select the Save icon in the filter bar and give it a name. Once saved, filters are available from the Saved Filters dropdown (left side of filter bar). Using a consistent naming convention will help later on.

  • Setting a Default Filter: A filter can also be made "sticky" so that it follows you as you navigate through the tool. To enable this feature, save a filter, select it from the Saved Filters dropdown, select the three dots icon just to the right, and select "Select as Default Filter". Even if you log out and log back in to LMI, this filter will be applied by default.
    Note: A benefit of applying a sticky filter in LMI is that storyboards will load faster with a filter applied.

Notes and Tips About Filters

  • The lists of Job Titles and Companies in the LMI data are exceptionally large. As a result, we have organized these into alphanumeric groups that expand. The easiest way to work wth these dimensions is to use the Search (magnifying glass icon) when making selections. If you do navigate the dimensions, expanding the sections will take several seconds (“wait for it”, as they say).

  • Filters will apply across all tiles on the active Storyboard unless explicitly excluded when designing custom storyboards. For more information about creating unfiltered tiles, please contact the One Model team.

  • Filters are not "sticky" unless they are set as your default filter. If you navigate to another storyboard, you will need to re-enter your filters. You will want to save your filters if you plan to re-use them in the current session or future sessions.

  • Filters stay with your User ID. If you want them to be used by another user, you will need to make a copy of the Storyboard and save it with these filters, then share it with that user. (see later section on creating storyboards)

  • A saved filter can be used within other Storyboards in LMI. Your list will always be there in the drop-down.

  • Filter dimensions with "2" in the name only filter the right side of either the "Company Comparison" or "Location Comparison" storyboards. They do not apply to anything else.

  • If you are planning to do some analysis and are likely going to save a filter, you should start from either a no-filter state or duplicate an existing filter then select it. Otherwise, your only option is to overwrite your existing filter.

Creating & Sharing Storyboards

Copy An Existing Storyboard

To Make an copy of an existing storyboard, firstly navigate to the storyboard library. Select the storyboard you would like to make a copy of from the list in the Storyboard Library, for example Labor Market Overview.

The Settings popup window will appear as seen below., click on the Copy button. In the Copy popup window enter in a name for the storyboard copied and description. Lastly, click on the “Copy” button.

A copy of the storyboard will be created as seen below. To make changes on the copied storyboard such as deleting some tiles, moving the positioning of the tiles, the user will need to navigate to “Edit Storyboard” mode by clicking on the “Pen” icon on the Page Header.

Within the edit mode the user can hover over to a specific tile and a popup will appear where the user can make changes such as go to the explore, design panel, disable storyboard filters for the particular tile, link tile to storyboard or delete the tile. Users can also modify the tile title by entering in a new title name.

To add a free text tile, click on the Add (shown as a "+") icon the on header bar. This will add a new free text tile at the bottom of the storyboard.

The user can add text by clicking on the pen icon on the menu bar above the Free text tile, hide the title header, link the tle to storyboard or delete the tile. Enter in a name for the tile and adjust the size of the tile by clicking on the drag icon on the right corner of the tile to make the free text tile bigger.

Once the user is happy with the adjustments to the free text tile, the user can click on the “Save” button

To reposition the free text tile or any tile on the storyboard, simply drag and drop the entire tile to the area you want.

Click on the “Save” button to apply the changes.

Copy a tile from an existing storyboard to a new storyboard

The user can copy a tile from an existing storyboard into a new storyboard. Simply navigate to an existing storyboard. Within the existing storyboard, in the top right of the tile you are interested in, click on the 3 dots and select "Explore."

This will open the Explore window which will show the tile you had selected along with options to change the query and the chart type. Here are links to some documentation that covers the Explore functionality:

To copy this tile into a new storyboard, click on the “Pin” icon on the right corner of the chart. In the drop down menu select “Pin to new storyboard”.

An pop up window will prompt the user to enter in a name for their new storyboard, in this case it can be called “Labor Markets Overview” and the tile title can be called “Supply and Demand Trend”. Lastly click on the “Create” button to create a new storyboard with the Chart.

Click on the Storyboard tab on the navigation bar to open up the Storyboard library. Within the Storyboard library, locate the new storyboard just created (this will be under the unshared storyboards category) eg. Labor Markets Overview.

You can now view the newly created storyboard which has the tile that you copied from an existing storyboard.

Copy a tile from an Existing Storyboard into another Storyboard

If the user wants to add other tiles to this storyboard, it can be done by following the same steps but selecting pin the existing tile on an existing dashboard instead of new storyboard.

Select an existing storyboard that you want to add the the existing tile to by clicking on the dropdown menu bar under Select Storyboard and choosing a storyboard from the list eg. Labor Markets Overview. Enter a tile title eg. Supply and Demand Graph . Lastly click on the “Pin” button which will pin the chart to that storyboard.

Sharing a Storyboard

To share a Unshared storyboard with other users, the user can select a unshared storyboard from the Storyboard Library

A popup window will appear where the user has to click on the Sharing tab. With the Sharing Settings, select a category for the Storyboard eg. “LMI” and select the user role access options eg. “Can View & Edit”. You should have two roles to which you can grant access: "Users" and another role that's your company's name. Sharing with "Users" means any LMI customer can access your storyboard. Your company role is users at your company only. Lastly click on the “Share” button to share the storyboard.
