Simply click on ‘Conversion time limit’, set a sequential number of the session and build a funnel.

Now you can also rename funnel steps!

SDK Update: full complience with COPPA

Released: 16/02/2023

If you have a child-directed app or game, you may worry that the data you send to devtodev is anonymised and protected enough. It’s not a problem anymore with our updated SDK because it operates in full compliance with COPPA — the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

This updated version of devtodev SDK does not collect, process or store ad IDs of children. It simply creates anonymised user identification numbers that can be used by the platform for tracking underaged users without influencing the decisions they make.

If you already use devtodev SDK, all you need to do is to enable the COPPA-compliance opinion before SDK initialization and delete the dependencies necessary for processing ad and vendor IDs. This will not interfere with your working process because almost all devtodev reports will stay available and you will be able to use them as you did before.

New metric in A/B tests: CARPU

Released: 14/02/2023

User Flow: more session analysis options

Released: 17/01/2023

Drill down into your user flow data by setting a limit on the number of user sessions! This option comes in handy in case you want to take a closer look at what your users managed to achieve during, let’s say, their first session, and compare it with your expectations.

There are three options in this report - “No”, “Limit by first session”, and “Limit by number of sessions”. If you want to see events that users completed during their first session, choose the second option. If you want to see data for several sessions, choose the third option. In this case, the calculation is as follows: we take the specified number of sessions performed during the selected period, then we take the dates of the first and the last sessions, and after that we analyze the events performed during this period.
