Cohort Heat Map and Cohort Trend 📡

A cohort heat map or trend line (Cohort Trend) to display metrics about group of people who completed an event you defined (activity X), followed by a subsequent event you defined (activity Y).

Examples: Retention and Lifetime Value are two specific types of cohorts you may want to view.

For Retention, X is a new activity you define, and Y is a repetition of that activity, like repeat purchases or repeat app launches. For Lifetime Value, X is a new activity you define, and Y is the sum of purchases for people in that cohort.

Note: Requires 2 events. You can select the same event twice.

Pie 🍰

A pie chart that requires a breakdown. We recommend this chart when you apply a breakdown with mutually exclusive parameters that have only a few values.

Examples: Purchases by gender and app launches by age. Page post impressions by whether the audience is made of fans or followers (Beta).
