Hey everyone, we’ve just released a new integration for receiving console notifications on Slack.
This is different from the current Slack integration which just sends audit logs.
To enable, go to “Account Settings” -> “Notifications” tab.
For more information about the app, see https://statsigcommunity.slack.com/apps/A022AA315JN-statsig.
(FYI we are working to get the app approved on Slack’s app store, but this may take some time)
Happy Monday (and Happy Halloween) Statsig Community! We've got some tricks AND some treats up our sleeve for you today, with an exciting set of new product updates-
You may have noticed a new “Dashboards” tab in the left-hand nav of your Console! Last week, we quietly started rolling out the v1 of our new Dashboards product. Dashboards give you a flexible canvas to build dashboards for the metrics, experiments, and rollouts your team cares most about.
With Dashboards, you can-
Create Custom Time Series - Create line or bar charts of your metrics, including dimension breakdowns for events.
Add Experiment and Rollout Monitoring - Add any Experiments or feature roll-outs that may impact your metrics inline on your Dashboard.
Organize and Label Widgets - Quickly and easily organize your widgets on the drag-and-drop canvas of the Dashboard. Add labels to clearly delineate grouped metrics, as well as caption individual charts to clarify metric definitions.
This is an early v1 foundation for our newest product offering, and something that will continue to evolve. If you have any feedback, we would love to hear it! Don’t hesitate to reach out with feature requests or suggestions for improvements.
To make adding relevant folks into the conversation on your Experiments and Gates easier, we’ve added the ability to tag team members in Discussions. Tagging team members in a Discussion comment will notify them via email (and soon Slack as well!)
Powerful search capabilities are key to being able to quickly navigate the Statsig Console. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve added keyword search for “started”, “ended”, and “active” search keywords, with support for either one date or a date range.
Attached is a table of how to use these. We've also added explicit filter options next to the search bar that will enable you to filter by Status, Health Check Status, ID Type, Creator, & Tag (all of which are also supported directly inline in Search).
Hey all, just wanted to announce that we have completed work on the Amplitude incoming integration. This will allow you to configure Amplitude to forward events to Statsig.
Today, we’re continuing to invest in our Stats Engine with the addition of Sequential Testing capabilities. In Sequential Testing, the p-values for each preliminary analysis window are adjusted to compensate for the increased false positive rate associated with peeking. The goal is to enable early decision-making when there's sufficient evidence, while limiting the risk of false positives.
To enable Sequential Testing on your experiment, we require setting a target duration (which is used to calculate the adjusted p-values). We provide a handy Power Analysis Calculator within Experiment Setup to enable quick and easy estimation of target duration.
Once a target duration is set, simply toggle on Sequential Testing to start seeing adjusted confidence intervals overlayed over the default 95% confidence interval within your Pulse results.
Happy FRIDAY, Statsig Community! We've made it to the end of the week, which means it's time for another set of product launch announcements!
Today, we’re excited to debut a sleek new configuration UX for experiment groups and parameters. Easily see your layer allocation, any targeting gates you’re using, experiment parameters, groups, and group split percentages in one, clear visual breakdown.
We believe this will make setting up experiments more intuitive for members of your team who are newer to Statsig, as well as give experiment creators and viewers alike an intuitive overview of how the experiment is configured.
It’s oftentimes considered best practice to regularly ensure the health of your stats engine and your metrics by running periodic A/A tests. We’ve made running these A/A tests at scale easy by setting up simulated A/A tests that run every day in the background, for every company on the platform. Starting today, you can download the running history of your simulated A/A test performance via the “Tools” menu in your Statsig Console.
We run 10 tests/ day, and the download will include your last 30 days of test results. Please note that we only started running these simulations ~1 week ago, so a download today will only include ~70 sets of simulation results.
Happy Friday, Statsig Community! Ending the week on a high note with a few new product launches for y'all-
This past week we added support for Stable & Custom IDs into Autotune, broadening the scope of use-cases you can run an Autotune experiment on. To learn more about leveraging Autotune, check out our docs here.
We’ve made double-clicking on data generated in Statsig even easier, by enabling you to download your Events Explorer results in CSV format. Please note that this is only available for Table and Sample views.
P.S.- Keep your eyes peeled for something special in the Statsig Console…
Good morning, Statsig Community! Fun launch update to start off your Thursday- announcing your new Home Tab!
Today, we’re starting to roll out a brand new tab in your Statsig Console, the Home Tab. The Home Tab serves as a launchpad into all the most important things happening in your team’s Statsig project.
Key features include-
Velocity Charts- helps teams easily track their experimentation and launch velocity
Core Metrics- A preview of the metrics with the "Core" tag to will show up on your Home Tab. If you haven’t tagged any metrics with "Core" yet (or you want to change which metrics are marked "Core"), you can manage this tag via the Metrics tab.
Quick Links- Shortcut links to Statsig resources, ability to invite new team members to your Project, and one-tap creation of a new Experiment, Feature Gate, etc.
Feed- Surfaces recent activity, making keeping tabs on what your team is testing and launching easy
We’re thrilled to announce that today we're rolling out native integrations with popular data warehouses (DWs) including Snowflake, Redshift, and BigQuery. Now you can import metrics directly from your existing DW tables and automatically include them in the results of all of your experiments, feature gates, and holdouts.
Ingesting precomputed metrics from DWs was been a common request from customers who have a well-established modern data stack. Our new native DW integrations enable you to immediately start measuring your team’s core metrics and KPIs for every product launch as you scale out product experimentation with Statsig
You can now simply enter your DW connection string in the Statsig console, map data in your tables to Statsig fields, and start to automatically ingest precomputed metrics into your project to observe metric shifts for every product update. To get started, navigate to Metrics from the left hand navigation panel and click on the Ingestion tab to add new metrics. In addition to ingesting metrics daily, you run an initial backfill to bootstrap your Metrics Catalog and validate that the integration is working as expected. To learn more, visit our documentation for Data Warehouse Ingestion
You can start ingesting precomputed metrics and raw events from Snowflake, Redshift, and BigQuery today, with support for Databricks coming soon. To request access, please hit us up!
Some launch announcements to spice up your mid-week As always, don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions or feature requests!
Today, we’re rolling out two new surfaces within Pulse to enable you to more easily analyze custom cuts of Pulse via an improved Custom Query interface. The Explore tab will enable creating quick, inline Custom Query explorations on your Pulse results, building a history of queries authored across the team that can be re-used/ modified by anyone leveraging the Explore tab. If a particular Custom Query is useful to look at on an ongoing basis, you can easily schedule the query to automatically run daily, which will live in the Scheduled tab.
Explore is currently live on Experiments only, and will be coming soon for Feature Gates.
You asked, we listened! As teams have scaled their usage of Statsig, we’ve seen the need for increasingly powerful search capabilities. Today, we’re starting to roll out Statsig Search 2.0, which includes the ability to search by Creator and Tag in addition to entity name, as well as includes a list of “Recently Searched” history as the default search null state to make getting back to your recently viewed entities extra easy.
Today, we’re opening up the ability to add tags to Experiments and Feature Gates at the point of creation, making it even easier to organize Experiments and Gates by team, company goal, etc. This addition will enable adding both existing tags, as well as creating new tags directly inline from the Experiment and Gate creation modals.
As more and more teams have started leveraging Custom Metrics, we’ve heard a consistent ask to support more metric types. Today, we’re debuting four new types of Custom Metrics:
Ratios of two other already-existing metrics; this option exists within the “Ratio” metric type
Event User (Count Any and Count All):
Users that have any or all of a set of (non-filtered) events
Event Count Custom: A count of a set of (non-filtered) events
Event User Max Rollup: Users that have logged a target event at least once
Please note- previews do not yet exist for these new Custom Metric types, but will be coming soon.
Starting the week off strong with a bevy of launches- as always, feel free to comment with questions/ ideas/ feedback.
To-date reviews have been enabled at the Project level, with no ability to set more granular controls for specific configs. This week we’re rolling out the ability to require reviews at the entity-level, even if reviews are not required at the Project-level. This capability is controlled via the “…” menu and is available for Experiments, Gates, Segments, and Dynamic Configs.
To make metrics management within the Metrics tab more streamlined, we’ve added bulk actioning on metrics. Bulk actions include tagging, hiding, or comparing all selected metrics.
In addition to adding individual metrics to your Primary and Secondary Metrics sections within the Experiment Scorecard, you can now add metric tags directly. Adding a tag to the Scorecard will automatically add all metrics in the tag to your Pulse results.
To continue to make debugging easier using Events Explorer, we are adding the ability to attach Experiment/ Gate exposures to events. Exposure annotations are controlled at the data settings level- to specify which Gates/ Experiments you want to see events annotated with exposure logs for, go to the “Data Settings” dialog at the top of Events Explorer and select up to 5 gates/ experiments. You will now be able to see pass/ fail/ group name on every event in Events Explorer for the gate/ experiment. Statsig starts logging these exposures with your application events after you update the Data Settings and doesn’t backfill exposures for past events.
The User's tab enables customers to diagnose issues for specific users. Previously, the Users tab listed your application's users as of the previous day. Now, you can you can query for a user who used your application within the last hour. To query for a user simply tap on the “+ Load User” CTA in the upper lefthand corner. A history of all queried users enables easy access to be able to go back and find previously-queried users.
