Dashboards – Overview
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, purchase, resource, progression, error and design.
Slicing and dicing your data to get the right insights is usually one of the first things you want to do after integrating analytics in your game. To help you do this, we’ve created predefined dashboards and also allow you to create your own. Within them you can use simple filters or advanced multi-dimensional filtering to get the right insights.

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.

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.

Looking at a graphs is fine for seeing trends, but many times what you really need is to take a hard look at the raw numbers. Expanding any widget will show a table view that is clearly populated with all the metrics you can see in the graphs. There’s also the ability to export the data with your preferred format.
