Data Limits

Event/Metric Records

We will load the top 5,000 records for each event or metric. Some low-volume records may be missing from the displayed analytics when looking at many different compare bys. In particular, data sorted by ascending values may be limited.

Cardinality Protection

Branch limits all dimensions to 40,000 values per publisher per day. This means that you can only see up to 40,000 unique campaigns, ad names, etc in the Dashboard.

If an app tries to send up > 40,000 values for a single dimension (e.g. ~campaign) in a day, then Branch stops tracking those unique values. Branch combines additional values together and bucket them under the value "Other".

Compare By

You can add 1 Compare by value to break down your data by a specific dimension.

Filter

You can add 2 Filters to get more granular with the data shown in the Summary Chart. Here you can add specific values for keys like os, ad partner, etc.

Organic/Unique

When Unique is checked, Branch employs an algorithm to generate an approximation of unique users completing an event within a given time period.

For example: Within the time interval selected, if 1 user clicks 100 times, the dashboard will only display 1 unique click.

There is no concept of "unique revenue"; "revenue" is always the sum of all purchase events.

By default, Unique is shown.

When Organic is checked, unattributed data will show (attributed: false). This data is not attributed to any click or impression, and is the same as "organic" or "direct" data. By default, Organics are left hidden.

Views/Download

By clicking the button in the upper right hand corner of the chart, you have the ability to View in Full Screen or download in one of the following formats:

  • PNG
  • XLS
  • SVG
  • CSV
