When you set up a new Project, you go through the setup process where you choose which data you wish to analyze in the Audit, along with other crawl settings.
These details are displayed on the Project page.
In order to adjust these settings, you need to start a new audit, so hit the green button ‘Start and Configure a New Audit.’
An overlay will appear, which allows you to either continue with the current settings, or select new settings.
If you choose to select new settings, you will go through to the Audit setup screen. This is the same as the screen you see when setting up a new Project, however all your previous settings will be pre-selected.
Adjust the settings as needed, then click ‘Start Audit’ at the bottom of the page. This will begin a new Audit, with the new settings you just selected, and this will also over-ride the Project settings for future Audits.
Note: Within a Project, as soon as you have at least 2 Audits, a ‘Compare Audits’ feature becomes available, under the section ‘Website Audit History’ (see 'Comparing Audits').
This allows you to select any two Audits and compare the data analyzed.
Similarly, if one Audit has ‘HTML Resource Analysis’ switched on, and another Audit does not – they will definitely contain different data.
Please be aware that if you do update the settings, you may no longer be able to perform an accurate Audit comparison.
