Please note: Product KPIs are mapped 1 to 1 with our Growth teams in order to focus those teams on experiments to improve our KPIs. Additional performance indicators will be tracked and may add value, but should ultimately drive one or more KPI.
Measured by the amount of users who completed a key onboarding step. This is defined as created a project, created or commented on an issue, or pushed a commit.
Measured by monthly growth in Stage Monthly Active Users (SMAU). SMAU is the number of unique users that actively use a stage in a given month. Stage usage is typically a roll-up of usage across a variety of lower level categories within a stage. For example, the Manage stage includes Authentication and Authorization, Administration, Groups, and more. The definition of active use for each stage and its underlying categories varies and is defined by the Product Manager in that particular stage. Stage-to-activity mapping is defined here
Dashboard Note: this dashboard currently overestimates SMAU as it counts all users of the instance toward the SMAU if the stage was in use, and does not adhere to our MAU definition.
