Part 4 - Game Data and Custom Events
Viewing your game data
Once implemented, GameAnalytics provides insight into more than 50 of the top gaming KPIs, straight out of the box. Many of these metrics are viewable on a real-time dashboard to get a quick overview into the health of your game throughout the day.
The real-time dashboard gives you visual insight into your number of concurrent users, incoming events, new users, returning users, transactions, total revenue, first time revenue and error logs.
Creating custom events
You can create your own custom events with unique IDs, which allow you to track actions specific to your game experience and measure these findings within the GameAnalytics interface. Event IDs are fully customizable and should fall within one of the following event types:
|Business||In-App Purchases supporting receipt validation on GA servers.|
|Resource||Managing the flow of virtual currencies – like gems or lives.|
|Progression||Level attempts with Start, Fail & Complete event.|
|Error||Submit exception stack traces or custom error messages.|
|Design||Submit custom event IDs. Useful for tracking metrics specifically needed for your game.|
For more information about planning and implementing each of these event types to suit your game, visit the game analytics data and events page.
