Custom Dashboards

Historical look-back now available for Embrace Custom Dashboards

Embrace's Custom Dashboards now let customers analyze long-term trends in their app's health and performance with the new historical look-back feature. Explore a time frame for any datapoints captured by the Metrics API, which now powers these dashboards to allow for even greater analysis capabilities.

Embrace’s Custom Dashboards allow you to build graphs, charts, and other widgets to analyze your mobile app performance data. Dashboards are particularly useful for setting and tracking certain metrics that are important for your organization, allowing you to visualize trends and spot anomalies. 

Our Dashboard tool provides a significant amount of customization and flexibility. Once you select a key metric as the basis for your widget, you’re able to overlay different filters, dimensions, and time intervals for a truly granular analysis.

Now, we’ve made our Custom Dashboards even more useful for trendspotting by enhancing how our data backend pulls metrics to populate our customers’ dashboards. 

We’re now using the Embrace Metrics API — one of our Data Forwarding tools that customers have been relying on to manually query both standard and custom metrics from our data stores — to power Custom Dashboards. 

This backend change to the platform means that users can now take advantage of a historical look-back feature when creating their own Custom Dashboards, giving them the freedom to explore long-term trends across the metrics captured by the Metrics API, which are among the most foundational health and performance signals. 

With historical look-back, dashboard users can now explore metrics from different time ranges beyond their standard data-retention period. For customers building a dashboard based on standard metrics, the look-back window extends as far back as 15-months. For those wanting to build dashboards based on custom metrics, the look-back window goes as far back as when they initially created the specific custom metric.

With this feature update, engineers and their entire mobile orgs will be better able to understand historical trends in their app’s performance, spot patterns, and explore even subtle anomalies with the help of powerful filters and dimensions.
