2021 Release Notes

Q4 2021

2021-12-18 R227

  • Inline Cohort: define up to 5 cohorts (user segments) inline with every formula: Query, Funnel, Path and Retention. There is no need to jump back and forth to create cohorts any more.
  • Currently two cohort types are supported. More types like Retention and Funnel are coming soon in future releases.
  • Performed: users who performed certain events in the time window. This is the mostly used cohort type.
  • Query: reference a previously executed Query with condition.
  • Any inline cohort can be saved with a name, so they can be referenced directly in the future.
  • Now you can also combine one breakdown (dimension property) with cohorts, as shown in the screenshot below.

  • Sequence: matches e1 -> ... -> e2 -> ... -> e3 when they happen sequentially, though there could be other events in between.
  • Exact: matches e1 -> e2 -> e3 in exact order without any other events in between.

2021-10-13 R217

Q3 2021

2021-09-27 R215

  • Abstract Event: treat both event name and a property as a separate step in Path.
  • For example: "page_view: Homepage", "user_action: Checkout"

  • Session Renewal: automatically renew session when Kubit is being used

2021-09-20 R214

  • New feature - Effect: added support in Query to show the impact of a Trigger Event before and after the Trigger Date.
  • Select "Trigger" as the type for the date range
  • Choose the Subject to analyze by (if applicable)
  • Specify the details of the Trigger Event

  • The returned chart will be rendered with "Day 0" in the middle, then
  • "Day -N" on the left showing before the Trigger Date
  • "Day +N" on the right showing after the Trigger Date

  • Improvement: increase to show up to 3000 events to choose from in the Event input.
  • Bug fix - Cohort Pre-filter with Negate Condition: fixed a bug related to cohort pre-filter when negate condition was specified ( "count(event) = 0" ).  

2021-09-16 R213

  • Median Function in Query: support statistic function median() in Query.
  • Formula Input Tuning: various UX tuning on inputs in all Formulas

2021-08-18 R210

  • Breakdown Bucketing: support bucketing for numeric field in breakdown. For example: breakdown by Age or Install Days with pre-defined bucket definitions.

  • Relative Time Window for Install + X days: when Install Date is used for group by, the analysis will only consider all the events happened within X days since Install Date.
  • Note: this feature is only enabled for Query in this release. Funnel will come in the next release.

2021-08-11 R209

  • Subject Bucketing and Histogram: Support group by Subject (user, device or session) in Query with bucketing (occurrences of Subjects in each bin) and show the distribution in histogram with statistics (min, max, mean, median, standard deviation and 95-percentile).
  • For example: Count Event(Download) for Subject=User and Bucketing=Range10
  • Query returns for each date, the count of Users who have a certain number of Download events for each bin (0-2, 2-4, 4-6, 6-8, 8-10, 10+).

  • In bar chart view, right click a certain date to "Expand" it to show the histogram to get a sense of the distribution of the occurrences

  • Expand Bar Chart: right click a certain date on bar chart to "Expand" it.

2021-07-19 R204

  • Query: Time Window for Install date. When Install date is selected, the look forward time window must be specified now (number of days). This means for the users with an Install date (cohort), analyze how many days of Events. Previously this value is hard coded as 90 days.  

  • Query: New Time Bucket - All Time. A new time bucket A (stands for "All Time") is introduced. When All Time is selected, the data within the selected date range is treated as a whole instead of grouped by Day/Week/Month/Year.

  • Retention
  • New Cohort Time Bucket - All Time. Treat all users within the selected date range as a whole instead of separate cohorts by Day/Week/Month/Year.
  • Retention Time Window: analyze how many days of data for each cohort. Leave it blank as a default to restrict to only the data within the selected date range (show a triangle of retention chart).
