Formulas

You can now write formulas in the Events Segmentation tab. This is helpful when you want to perform specific analyses on events.

For example, you may be interested in seeing the average number of calories logged per user per day, as seen in the below image.

GDE Summary

Note: Growth Discovery Engine (GDE) is only available on the Enterprise plan.

You can now view a summary of the top correlated events in the Growth Discovery Engine (GDE). This additional functionality gives you a quick summary of what the top correlated events are for a base cohort of users to convert to a target cohort.

Hiding User Properties

You can now toggle certain user properties to be hidden from all graphs and calculations in the platform. This is helpful for user properties that are old or that you no longer care to track.

hiding_user_properties

Note: marking a user property as “Hidden” does not delete the raw data.

Revenue Properties Segmentation

You can now segment on “[Amplitude] Revenue” events by specific revenue properties in the Events Segmentation tab. The revenue properties are stored as event properties with a ‘$’ sign prefixed.

Note: these properties must be explicitly sent by you via our SDKs, when you log revenue events.

Outbound Integration

In addition to Kahuna and Urban Airship, you can now integrate Amplitude with Outbound to engage with your user base. This integration combines Amplitude’s analytics with Outbound’s user engagement tools into one unified system. Using this integration will allow you to share all user data in real-time and allow non-technical product and marketing team members to do full-circle tracking, analysis and engagement across web and mobile apps.
