Branch Dashboard Overview
The Dashboard is the primary location where you will be interfacing with Branch's products and analytics. Any individual who has a Branch account login can access the Branch Dashboard.
The three primary functions of the dashboard include:
- Link and Campaign Creation
- Viewing your analytics
- Configuration of your Account Settings
The first page you will see when logging into the Branch Dashboard is the Branch Summary page. This dashboard provides a global overview of your Branch analytics across all your channels, campaigns, and use cases for Branch linking.
Shortcuts allow quick access to view data for:
- All Data
- Quick Links
- Universal Ads
- Universal Email
The Summary page allows you to:
- View data custom date ranges and data granularity
- Select the metrics you would like to view and how you would like to compare them, both visually and in Table form.
- Share reports with other stakeholders on your team
Choose a pre-set date range via the drop-down menu or customize the time frame using the date selector.
Sharing and Saving
Create a Branch link to share your view with another person on your team or save your report to come back to at another time.
Summary tiles are customizable and allow for the selection of the metrics that are the most important to you.
Select the metrics (downloads, clicks, installs etc.) and how you would like to compare them (ad partner, campaign, device type, geography etc.) In order to explore a visual breakdown of the data. View more closely or export the graphs for later use.
Events/ Performance Table
View a table breakdown for the time window selected at the top of the page. Again, select the metrics you would like to view and how you would like to compare them, this time, via the "add columns" button, "Compare By" dropdown, and additional filters. Download the data to CSV for additional analysis.
