Custom metrics now available in MyTracker's Report Builder

MyTracker has expanded its analytics toolkit: now you can create your own custom metrics in reports and compare any data without having to exit the tool and upload information to another platform for post-processing.

These metrics are often employed by marketing experts and analysts to calculate necessary indicators for any specific business or task. Calculated metrics will help you get answers to certain questions, for example:

Practical example of a calculated metric in MyTracker

Imagine you want to calculate the cost of returning one customer through a retargeting campaign.

Uploading data to Excel is no longer necessary

Calculated metrics eliminate the need to export data from MyTracker to Excel files in order to compile the information for your custom report. Any user can now add their own indicators to reports to manage data in a familiar layout.

A solution fit for the entire team

Reports featuring a calculated metric can be sent to your colleagues for them to save that metric and use it in their own reports.
