So I typically am tracking feature adoption for things that we have recently released. So I'm usually tracking Unique Visitors and Visits for some of our features over the last few months.
I created a cohort of first time launches. Over this cohort I want to see how many of these users did an action.
See the table below, on Aug 1, I had 166 unique users opening the app for first time (First Launches), over these 166 unique users 4 did an action on August 2nd. But, how can I know how many of the 166 users did the action on the same day first time open (Day-0)?
Based on what I read here, day 0 is not included in the cohort: https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-analytics-questions/definition-of-1-days-in-c...
Otherwise this give an uncompleted analysis, even more if I look at the rolling cohort.
I appreciate any help."
This is a great question and ultimately it is a feature request because as mentioned, day 0 is not included. We've heard this request a few times from a few customers and so we've marked this request and put it on our backlog for future consideration, but currently day 0 analysis in cohort is not possible.
"Hi, I wonder why the sum in the cohort table differs from the total sum in my freeform table in workspace..
For example: I am looking at my cohort table and my data is per month and I look at total sum of orders and how many visits that are returning.
The total sum of orders for a month dont match the total sum of orders in my freeform table.
The "right" sum is the one in the freeform table. But why isn't the sum in my cohort tabe the same?
Another great question. The numbers calculated in the cohort table are using sequential segmentation so the factors that generate the results are slightly different than what you might see in the raw data in a freeform table. So depending on the settings you are applying, you will see slightly different results in cohort than in freeform.
I created a Cohort analysis and for my inclusion criteria I added orders for visitors who registered for a first time customer program. For my return criteria, I wanted to know how many of those visitors who came back to the site and placed another order. I was asked by my client if I could do the same thing using revenue. The client wants to know what the average order size is for the inclusion criteria compared to average order size for the return inclusion. I tried and could not use revenue in my inclusion or return criteria.
1. Can I include revenue in a Cohort analysis?
2. If not, how can I get average order size with the inclusion and return orders?
Good question. As outlined in our documentation, Cohort Analysis does not support non-segmentable metrics (including calculated metrics), non-integer metrics (such as Revenue), or Occurrences. Only metrics that can be used in segments can be used in Cohort Analysis, and they can only be incremented by 1 at a time.
I have been using the cohort analysis to understand the user's journey in our app.
I want to know how many users visit a specific screen in our app (ie: paywall) after a specific period.
I select the user who open the app for first time (Segment: First Time Visit) in Month "x" and the time period "Last full 6 months".
Then, select for Inclusion and Return criteria, metric=Visits and in the Dimensions the screen I want to measure, in this case Dimensions=Paywall.
Note: it is very unfortunate that Adobe limit the granularity to not longer than 15 days (rows), I guess this is a limitation on the tool.
However, I select monthly granularity, I get the breakdown of how many user visit the Paywall screen break in the last 6 months.
Great questions. I'll try to take them in order.
So yes, the cohort shows the number of unique visitors every month (assuming your First Time Visit segment is visitor-based.
Assuming it's all set up properly, each cell should show the number of visitors to that page on the given month. If you want to know total visits to a page, then that would be a different segment definition.
To get beyond the current 6 months you could extend the date range to see beyond that. Or create segments from each of the cohorts and analyze them separately in another cohort or freeform table.
Are there any plans of supporting unbounded retention in Cohorts like it's possible in Amplitude (https://help.amplitude.com/hc/en-us/articles/230543327#unbounded-retention)? Today we only have n-day/week/month retention and that's really not the best way of measuring retention on the product I'm currently working on.
When we released the Cohort updates a few years back, this was one of the features we had explored, but we had to cut it for scope and put it back on our backlog of ideas for Cohort. So for now we don't have plans to add it, but it is certainly something we could provide in the future.
