Our Custom dashboards features lets you show the metrics on your visualisation that you only want to see, rather than all of them. You can create certain views and build as many custom dashboards as you like. But to give you a better idea of what this means, here are just a few of the things you can do with this feature:
Create dashboards centred around your player’s interaction within your game
- This could include a breakdown of your players spending habits, or simply tracking the most in demand characters, items or bonuses.
Mediate all the data-views that are important to you into one view
- This includes different visualisations types that you prefer, or just our standard ones.
Further breakdown your performance metrics across a wider range of dimensions
- Understand which metrics may have an effect on your player’s activity according to your needs, allowing you to go beyond our standard KPI metrics. That’s the beauty of custom dashboards. They’re custom.
In this article we will cover how to create a step-by-step on creating a Custom Dashboard and it's widgets.
Creating a Custom Dashboard
To create a custom dashboard navigate to the Dashboards feature and click on the "Create" button at the top right of your screen.
Next, you’ll see a Custom Dashboard creation page. From here you'll be able to:
- Customise the dashboard name and description
- Create and add your own widgets to show the data you're looking for
Creating Custom Widgets
To create a widget you need to access a custom dashboard (either an existing one or a new one), and then select one of the "+ Widget" buttons on the screen (see screenshot above).
This will open up the Widget Builder:
In the widget builder, you'll be able to customise your query to display the data you're looking for. This works in a similar way to how you build queries in the Explore Tool.
Let's create an example widget where we show Ads clicked by country. First you'll want to select the Ads Clicked metric:
After that we'll want to add a Group By and select the Global Dimension of Country code.
Once you've applied that you'll get a preview of the widget:
From here you can click on the "Done" button at the top right of your screen to save the widget and it'll take you back to the custom dashboard builder screen. After that you can choose to:
- Add more widgets
- Edit existing widgets
- Save the custom dashboard by clicking on the "Save" button at the top right.
