Drag and Drop Cohort Analysis

Drag and Drop Cohort Analysis is a powerful technique for understanding how groups of users behave over time.  Unfortunately, cohort analysis is really hard to do. In Excel sheet, you need to build a complex pivot tables and do lots of  calculations. Tableau requires you to construct new “Calculated Fields” and construct formulas to define each cohort. Of course, you could always write a good old SQL query.

Drag and Drop Cohort analysis is a subset of behavioral analytics that takes the data from a given data set and rather than looking at all users as one unit, it breaks them into related groups for analysis. These related cohorts, or groups, usually share common characteristics or experiences within a defined time-span

Cohort analytics is a kind of analytics that helps product teams compare cohorts of users within a digital product. Every cohort shares a common characteristic over time, such as purchase date, acquisition date, or a particular behavior.

By analyzing cohorts, product teams can allow features or run marketing campaigns to increase their engagement or retention.

Teams that have ignore cohorts and only use metrics that reflects broad averages across every users can miss important details. Cohorts analytics tells the product teams where the advanced users need more features, where less advanced users need more guidance, and where every cohort typically runs into trouble along their user journey.
