# Analytics Dashboard

# Overview

The AccelByte Analytics Dashboard provides dynamic visualizations of key player metrics such as Monthly Active Users, Peak Concurrent Users, Retention, Stickiness, and more. These metrics measure both short and long term patterns, and can be analyzed to help inform business decisions.

# Metrics

The AccelByte Analytics dashboard can display data from any namespace in your environment. When you choose to view data in the publisher namespace, the data will be a culmination of all of the data from all of the game namespaces in your environment. To learn more about namespaces, see the Namespace documentation. Here are the metrics shown in the Analytics Dashboard:

NOTE

When you view analytics data in your publisher namespace only unique players will be counted, so players of multiple games won’t be counted multiple times.

# Monthly Active User (MAU)

The Monthly Active Users value at the top of a page shows the number of unique active players on your platform this month.

NOTE

The green or red number on the right side of the metrics at the top of the dashboard shows the difference between the current metric and the previous one. If the current value is higher than the previous one the number will be green; if it’s lower the number will be red.

The Monthly Active Users (MAU) bar graph in the Users tab displays the MAU of every month of the current year, or of the last 3 or 6 months. You can switch between these options by selecting either Year to Date, Last 3 Months, or Last 6 Months from the dropdown menu in the top-right corner of the panel.

# Stickiness

The Stickiness line graph in the Retention tab shows the average DAU from the past 30 days divided by the MAU. Data is shown in a 30-day time series covering the current year, so for example if today is October 30th the most recent data point includes data from October 1st-30th, the previous data point includes data from September 1st-30th, and so on.

This metric shows you how many days the average player plays your game in a month: for example, a stickiness value of 50% means that the average player played your game 15 out of 30 days.
