The brand new Universal App Dashboard shows a lot of information about your account. This new dashboard provides you with analytics data and it comes out with two different layouts for trial and active customers. We’ll be explaining every part of the Dashboard one by one.
Please Note: This overview is for trial users ONLY. For active users, go to this article for the overview of active users’ Dashboard.
Disclaimer! When you’re just starting out with Universal App, the data shown on your Dashboard is only dummy data. Your Dashboard will pull your real data once you have published content in your Universal App and successfully connect it to your domain.
Here's a quick explanation for each part of the Dashboard according to the corresponding number on the screenshot above.
As you are new to Universal App - chances are you haven’t set up a Stripe account yet. This part here is showing dummy data that we prepared for illustration purposes. After you connect a Stripe account, create subscriptions, and connect your Universal App to a custom domain then the Monthly Revenue feature will start calculating your revenue from the last 30 days on a rolling basis, e.g. today is December 16, so it will show data from November 16 - December 15. The data is pulled directly from Stripe.
This part also shows dummy data for your reference. Once you go live with your custom domain, you will get visitors and this feature will start reflecting your real data. Visitors are anyone who visits your Universal App - they can be a reader or just visiting. Learn more about different kinds of visitors here.
This shows your total number of visitors since you went live.
This reflects how many times your Universal App has been visited since you went live (by adding your custom domain). Like Total Visitors - this part will show dummy data until you connect your Universal App to a custom domain.
This shows Google Analytics tracking stats for your Universal App. If you haven’t successfully connected a custom domain to your Universal App, this part will only show dummy data.
Please Note: Unlike the other metrics, Traffic shows the data from the beginning of a period to the end instead of a rolling period. For example, for the 1-year data, if today is March 15, 2021, it will not show data from March 2020 to March 2021 but instead, it will show the data from January 2021 until December 2021. When you switch to the 1-month traffic, it will show data per week for the past four weeks, starting from a Sunday.
This is where you can find out how long you have got until the end of your trial. When your trial ends and you upgrade to an active subscription, this part will disappear. Otherwise, it will show 0 days until the end of your trial.
This is where you can start building your content - starting with importing your PDF content to HTML. This button will direct you to Content > Import PDF page in your Universal App admin.
Average Time Spent (per user, per session)
This shows you how much time your users spent on your content per session. This information can give you an insight into the engagement rate and your readers’ interest in your content. If your ATS is decreasing, it means that your readers spend less time on your content and you might want to find out why. It can also help your Universal App’s SEO score – Google measures the quality of your content, meaning that the longer readers spend with your Universal App, the higher your SEO score might be.
This can also help you to plan your content length. For example, if your articles only have around 100-300 words, it might affect the average time spent by the readers on their UA, the less time spent, the lower your SEO score might be, on top of other things that affect SEO score. However, this is not the main thing that affects SEO score, but it does comprise one of the important indicators contributing to a good SEO score. You can do whatever you want with the data!
Most Visited Content
This list will show you which content is trending or doing well and reflects how many times they were visited. This can be helpful - you can see what kind of content your general viewers gravitate towards.
