# 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 Users (MAU)

The Monthly Active Users value shows the number of unique active players on your platform in the current month.

NOTE

Green or red numbers on the right-hand side of the metrics show the difference between the current month’s metric and the previous month’s. Green means that the current value is higher than the previous month, while red means that the current value is lower.

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