Dashboards

Dashboards are one of the most important features of GameAnalytics. In essence, data visualized here is split between metrics and custom events instrumented in the SDK belonging to one of our event categories: user, business, design, progression, resource and error.

The pre-computed metrics are based on your daily events calculated and made available the next day. All of the metrics presented in the dashboards can be split by Dimensions containing user demographics and characteristics.

Monetization

1st Monetizers


This dashboard looks at the spending behavior of players in your game who are making their first purchase.

Resources

This dashboard helps you balance the flow of in-game resources (e.g. your virtual economy). The metrics show you how your players are earning and spending resources in your game, like virtual currencies, lives and XP. And it lets you break down the flow of resource to understand specifically what item type or item id is driving the trends.

The dashboard is broken down by currency into sink (spend) and sources (reward). Currencies are broken down by the item type and item id, meaning you can see if users and buying boosters or consumables. Moreover you can see which specific item users and buying with any currency.

Progression


This dashboard lets you dig into how players are completing levels in your game, including how difficult levels are to complete, what score they receive upon completion, and how quickly they are completing your content.

Custom dashboards


You can also create custom dashboards in GameAnalytics to fit the reporting and analysis you need. Custom dashboards are particularly useful for visualizing Design events that you send from the game. When creating a Custom dashboard you can choose to duplicate an already existing dashboard, or you can start from scratch to add individual widgets you want. There is no limit to the number of Custom dashboards that you can create.
