Custom dashboard

The Custom Dashboard allows you to build your own customized dashboards from inside the AppsFlyer dashboard. You can easily select, name and position the items that you want to view and have that data in your own customized report. Using this feature, you can create as many dashboards as you want to suit your needs. 

 Note

Custom Dashboard is available for Advertiser accounts only. If you get an error while trying to open the Custom Dashboard, you probably have a hybrid account (Agency and Advertiser combined). Read the instructions for hybrid accounts here.

 Note

KPIs in custom dashboards are LTV-based data, and are those that related to installs and in-app events from user acquisition campaigns, in parallel to the KPIs of the dashboard's Overview page. Currently custom dashboards KPIs don't include data from other dashboard pages like retargeting, activity, retention etc.

In the Custom Dashboard window, your new dashboard now appears in the dropdown list of existing custom dashboards, where it is available to all your team members to access.

Another way to share your custom dashboard with your teammates, enabling them to enter it directly, is by sending the custom dashboard's URL to them.

  • Select the dashboard you want to view.
    The selected Custom Dashboard window opens:

Customizing, personalizing and editing widgets

If the widget isn't the right size for you, you can resize it by dragging the corner of the widget. Additionally, if you want to change the order and position of the widgets, simply using drag and drop, you can re-position the widgets to create your ideal dashboard.

As you hover over each widget with your mouse, an arrow symbol appears and you can select what you want to do with that widget. You can edit, duplicate or delete a widget.
