Click “Create Chart” on the top navigation bar to create a new analysis. Amplitude exists at the organization level, so you can access your data for multiple projects in one consolidated view. This org - project(s) structure allows you to have charts from different projects on one dashboard. To select a project you want for your analysis click the dropdown in the top left corner before you select a chart type.
Next, select the type of chart you would like to create. We have four categories: Know Your Users, Convert Your Users, Retain Your Users, and Monetize.
Once a chart is created, click "Save" in the top-right corner.
Once you save a chart, you can add a description to your chart. The chart description text box will appear after you click on the chart title.
After a chart is saved, more icons will appear in the top-right corner of the chart. The first icon, "More," presents three options:
- Transfer Ownership: This allows you to change the owner of a chart. Once you transfer your ownership, you will no longer be able to make edits to the saved chart or object. Edits can only be made by the current owner. Admins and Managers can transfer ownership of charts that do not belong to them.
- Revert: Allows you to go back to the most recently saved version of this chart. You can also use your browser’s back button to undo the most recent edit to your chart.
- Archive: Charts are archived instead of deleted, so no content is ever lost. You should archive a chart when the chart becomes irrelevant to your analyses. Users can still search for archived charts in “Browse Charts.” Archiving a chart will disable all shared links associated with that chart. However, when the chart is un-archived, the shared links will be reactivated.
- Set Alert (Enterprise): In Event Segmentation charts you can set up daily, weekly, and monthly email alerts to send when current data value changes based on your custom conditions. Specifically, at 12:00 UTC, our servers will check the most recent completed data value to see if it meets the alert conditions. If the most recent completed value meets your custom conditions, an email alert will be sent approximately at 12:00 UTC.
For example, suppose you have set a daily alert for your Event Segmentation chart to trigger if the current "daily active user" value is greater than the previous value by 50%. On June 3rd, 12:00 UTC, our servers will compare the completed value on June 2nd to see if it is 50% greater than the value on June 1st. If it is, an email alert will be sent.
Note: You can only create alerts for charts with single segments since the alert will not know which segment you would want to trigger the alert if you had multiple segments on a chart.
The "Add" button allows you to add your chart to a new or existing dashboard.
Note: Only the "Download as CSV" option is available to non-Enterprise customers.
"Share" gives you the option to share your chart as a PNG, PDF, CSV, or shared link. Shared link access can be granted and revoked in the Create shared link pop-up window.
The "Save As" icon duplicates the chart so that you can make changes without altering the original chart. You are also able to use "Save As" on other users' charts in your organization. This essentially allows you to copy a chart so that you can make edits to it without changing the original.
To switch the project that you are viewing, click the project name in the title of the chart and select a different project. We will transform the chart to reflect the data of the newly selected project. The new chart will match the controls of the original chart as closely as possible.
You can zoom in on charts by dragging diagonally across the chart and creating a rectangle. This will zoom in on a certain section of the chart. You can reset the zoom by clicking the "Reset zoom" button.
