Creating Dashboards

You can create one or more custom dashboards to provide a variety of views into the analytics reported by your apps. A custom dashboard has at least one but can have up to four charts. Each chart can display one or more series of data values, including values from standard series analytics provided by Mobile Analytics as well as custom series you define to meet the particular needs of your app and organization.

For example, tracking the financial performance of your app can be facilitated by a custom dashboard that includes data from monetization events along with data about new users.
