Custom Dashboards in Analytics

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 Behaviour, Funnels and Cohort section of Analytics.

Dashboard Types

MoEngage provides 2 types of Dashboards - Predefined Dashboards & Custom Dashboards.

Predefined 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.


Custom Dashboard

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.
These dashboards do not contain filters of 'Platform' and 'Date Range' as each and every report is customized by the user.

Creating Custom Dashboards

A custom dashboard can be added in 2 different ways: 

1. From the Navigation Side Bar - Click on the Dashboard and then click on + Create Dashboard. Enter the desired name and hit Create. An account can have up to 10 Custom Dashboards and up to 10 charts in each dashboard. 



2. From chart area of Behavior, Funnel, and Cohort while adding charts to the custom dashboards. This is explained in the next section.
