New (3/12/18): Improved Metric selector dropdown

We've redesigned the metric selector dropdown to make things a little easier to find. The dropdown is now divided into the following categories: General Metrics, Custom MetricsAutomatic Event MetricsCustom Event Metrics, and State Metrics. You can still use search to find metrics from any category quickly and easily.

Note that if you don't have metrics in one of the sections, for example, if you don't have any custom events or states, that category won't show up in the metric selector dropdown.

All Event and State metrics are now nested under the event or state that the metrics are based on. This makes it easier to distinguish between event and state metrics that may have duplicate or similar names.

See below for details on each section of the new dropdown:

General Metrics

General Metrics lists all of Leanplum's out-of-the-box metrics, like Time in app and Total purchases. These are calculated automatically after your initial SDK implementation (where you set up your purchase event and other default settings).

Note that the General Metrics category will show all of your general metrics, but other categories will only show the top 10 metrics in that section. You can always search for a metric to make it appear.

Custom Metics

Custom Metrics lists all of the custom metrics you've created based on other metrics. You can create custom metrics using the process outlined here

Select your custom metric from the dropdown or search for it to see it in the Analytics chart.

Automatic Event Metrics

Automatic Event Metrics contains all of the metrics that are based on events Leanplum creates automatically for you, such as message View events and A/B test Impression events. Just select the event you are interested in to see its associated Metrics.

For example, our "Ask again" message has an automatically created View event. Selecting this View event reveals all of its associated metrics.

Custom Event Metrics

Custom Event Metrics contains all of the metrics that are calculated based on custom events you track in Leanplum. In the example below, AskButton is a custom event in our app.

All of the metrics calculated based on this event are nested underneath that event  — just click the event to see all of its associated metrics.

State Metrics

State Metrics contains all of the metrics associated with the states defined in your app.

Just like with event metrics, select the state you want to see a metric for, then select your metric from the options that appear. 

Note that when using the Metric selector, the selected metric will not be saved to the report for later use. For that, you'll either need to bookmark the report or add the metric as a favorite
