Custom Dashboards

Overview

CleverTap provides a set of default dashboards, such as the Today View which you can use to analyze user activity in your application. Custom Dashboards is a feature in CleverTap that provides the capability to create and customize your own board.

Each custom dashboard you create is composed of cards which are widgets that you can pin to the board to track metrics you are most interested in. You can pin cards that track events, funnels, segments, trends, and cohorts.

For example, if you want to create a custom dashboard to analyze App Launch events over the past 30 days, you can add a line graph card to view the number of App Launch events and a bar graph to view the distribution between App Launched and Charged.

After you build your custom dashboard, you can pin it to a custom board and can also share it with other people in your organization.
