Simplify Your App Analytics with Custom Dashboards

By Daryl Burghardt, Design Director, Flurry Analytics

Like many Flurry users, our goal is to deliver useful and meaningful experiences in our product. Based upon customer feedback and research, we are pleased to announce the initial release of customizable dashboards where you can now collect and group your most-used and relevant metrics. This is a step toward a more personalized Flurry experience where you can reorder, resize, and share data most relevant to your business and app development needs.

Custom Dashboards for Both Desktop and Mobile

We are introducing the ability to add your favorite charts to Custom Dashboards for both our desktop and Android and iOS app experiences; you’ll be able to have your data your way, anywhere you might need it. If you haven’t tried the Flurry app yet, now might be a good time as you can easily take advantage of your most needed metrics right on your mobile device. Leveraging the power of the Flurry desktop experience, we have been striving to make the Flurry app experience straightforward and focused.

Easily Add Charts and New Custom Dashboards

Choose Your Favorites

Real-Time Devices Chart

Any chart that can be added as a favorite item will have a star icon available to easily save it to your Custom Dashboards. Once you select the star, you’ll see a series of options to give the chart being saved a meaningful name and an option to either create a new dashboard, or add to an existing Custom Dashboard. You can save charts to multiple dashboards to avoid navigating through different tabs and lists within Flurry.

  • Choose your most-used charts
  • Name your own dashboards
  • Give meaningful names to your own charts
  • Edit and remove items as needed


Define Your Own Flurry Experience

What Is Most Relevant to You?

Flurry Custom Dashboards with 2 Charts

Our goal is to make Custom Dashboards the starting point in Flurry Analytics, pre-populated with the most valuable metrics and reports for your app. You will find Custom Dashboards are now the top-most navigation item so you can easily begin adding your most-needed items as you see fit. You can give meaningful names to the various dashboard views and charts to better track and manage them your own way. You can also remove any custom items at any point should you no longer need them; the original charts will remain intact where you originally found them as Flurry default charts (e.g. “App Activity”) so you can always go back and add them again if they become relevant.

Refining the Overall Filter Experience

For the initial Custom Dashboards launch, we have incorporated read-only views for filters, but we plan to introduce the ability to directly edit applied filters and other chart settings. Charts saved to your dashboards can be opened in Flurry’s standard full screen mode where you can see all details and applied settings so you can investigate and adjust. Over the coming months, we’ll refine how charts in Custom Dashboards can be repurposed and refined. Even ad hoc queries via Flurry Explorer will become a part of your customizable favorites allowing even easier access to your most crucial data which we hope will ultimately save you time. We are also looking to rework the overall filter experience itself to make defining the data you see quicker and easier to apply.

We are excited to simplify the Flurry experience for you, so reach out to us at if you have any comment, concerns, or other needs we might not have considered! We are here to make Flurry better.
