There are five different types of metrics being calculated in the deltaDNA system. This provides a lot of choices but can also be confusing.

All metrics are no more than 3 seconds out of date from when an event is processed by the platform. Events can be batched on the client device and if there’s a delay in sending the event to the platform, these delays should be considered.

Generic metrics

  • Days Played Last 7 Days: This is the number of days in the last 7 days a player has played. As this is evaluated when an engagement is made it’ll be at least 1 day.
  • Total Days Played: This is the total number of days a player has played since they started playing the game.
  • Possible Days Last 7 Days: This is the number of days a player could have played in the last 7 days. If they started 2 days ago then the number would be 2.
  • Sessions Played Last 7 Days: This is the number of sessions in the last 7 days a player has played. As this is evaluated when an engagement is made it’ll be at least 1 session.
  • Platforms Played Last 7 Days: This is the number of different platforms the player has played in the last 7 days, based on the platform parameter collected.
  • AVG Mins Played Per Day Last 7 Days: This is the average number of minutes played per day in the last 7 days.
