A dashboard is a collection of charts, which provides an overview of the most important reports and metrics. Dashboards let you quickly monitor the health of your product and marketing efforts.
Custom Reports & KPIs which are important for product managers and marketers can be added to the desired dashboard. Multiple reports can be added to the same dashboard. Reports and charts in the dashboard are added from the Behavior, Funnels, and Retention section of Analytics.
MoEngage provides 2 types of Dashboards - Predefined Dashboards & Custom Dashboards.
These dashboards are defined by MoEngage and are present by default with all the accounts. The charts and reports in these dashboards have common filters of Platform and Date Range, modification in these filters reflects the change across the reports. These reports have predefined granularity set at Day level and chart type set to the line-chart.
Key Metrics is the default dashboard provided by MoEngage. Click to know more about Key Metrics.
As the name suggests, these dashboards are custom-made by marketers and product managers. New custom dashboards can be created and multiple reports can be added to desired dashboards. These reports can have different time ranges, different granularities, and different chart types.
