Do you have team members new to product analytics? Maybe you’re a power user in Amplitude looking for a quick shortcut to answer critical questions around Conversion, Adoption, Engagement, and User Activity. We want to help product teams take the guesswork out of identifying and tracking metrics, so we’re introducing Starter Templates to give you an out-of-the-box dashboard experience that answers your most essential questions in Amplitude. With just a few clicks, you can spin up a dashboard for your business that can be saved and customized alongside other analyses in Amplitude. Starter Templates are available to all customers, including free and paid plans.

Starter Templates

Use Starter Templates to quickly spin up a report that is relevant to you and customize it for conversion insights, measure feature engagement or inform your retention strategy. Whatever your reporting workflow looks like, Starter Templates have you covered! Starter Templates are a great tool to help your team onboard quickly and make the most out of their onboarding experience.

Inform your North Star with our new Product KPI Template

In building Starter Templates, we also wanted to help product teams better meet the moment, adapt to new challenges, and focus on the right investments to drive growth. In this current macro-environment, companies are doubling down on their product strategy. But where do you even begin? Determining your product’s North Star is one of the most important measures of success for a product-led growth strategy. Your North Star defines the relationship between the customer problems that the product team is trying to solve and the revenue the business aims to generate.

To help teams get started on your North Star journey, we’re also introducing a brand new set of Product KPIs within Starter Templates. (Try our demo here!) This new template automatically generates a view of your most important KPIs to help better inform your North Star as a leading indicator of sustainable growth for your business. You can quickly surface the baseline essentials that every founder, product leader, or CEO needs to know about the product: KPIs around activation, engagement, retention, and even resurrection of dormant users.

Tag any dashboard as a Template for your team

Dashboard Templates

Starter Templates are just the beginning of how you can automate reporting in Amplitude. Within Amplitude, you can also tag any dashboard as a template, so your teams can easily customize them as their own. Teams can re-purpose the same template for a new product launch, a new experiment, or spin up a customer health report for critical accounts. Instead of re-creating a dashboard from scratch, spin up a template and quickly customize it with your events, properties, text, and project source.

Data analytics teams can use Dashboard Templates to confidently onboard new users into product analytics at their company. Companies can set up templates to speed up adoption and ensure novices and consumers of product insights create accurate and reliable reports in Amplitude.
