We hosted an AMA (ask me anything) style forum with Nofar Albarak, an experienced product leader who’s built products that serve Fortune 100 companies and millions of users across the globe. In this session, Nofar provided guidance on growing and developing a high-performing product team, as well as answers to questions that were pre-submitted and asked live during the webinar. You can watch on demand here. Click the links below to see Nofar’s questions that we didn’t get to respond to during the live event: Q: When looking at your product, when you have lots of ideas for new features, how do you know which feature to build? Q: I’m looking to remove a feature in my product, but not sure whether it’s the best idea as some customers use it. What can I do to make this decision easier? Q: Should one ever compromise core brand values in favor of profitability, or more competitive market pricing/positioning when speccing a product? Q: What should i keep in mind while doing
How are users moving from different states of engagement?MPKNOWLEDGEDROP
Michael wrote last week about how to create engagement buckets. That’s a fundamental start, but the next question analysts invariably ask then is: how do we track how users move from one state to another? In other words, how do we track if users are becoming more engaged, or less? And more crucially then, how can we encourage movement between these engagement states? Let’s continue with Michael’s example using the music finder. Suppose, we’re interested in tracking how users move from the Core cohort (play a song 1x a week) to a Power cohort (play a song at least 2x a week). We can construct the following cohort in the Cohort report to track the trend: We can then visualise this cohort in the Insights report: Now that we can track how users are changing from Core to Power, we can try to come up with different hypotheses of the actions we can do to grow that cohort over time. This is where the Signal report comes in handy. We can construct the following query:
Why I think you should have a personal analytics strategyMPKnowledgeDrop

This week I delivered a few webinars with all my customers with the aim of each person understanding why and how to create their own personal analytics strategy. This is something that is particularly interesting for me as I used to think that strategy was something reserved for Leadership or C-Level members of the team. But I now wholeheartedly disagree. We began with the following definition of Strategy (thanks to the Merriam-Webster dictionary): a careful plan or method : a clever stratagem the art of devising or employing plans or stratagems toward a goal an adaptation or complex of adaptations (as of behavior, metabolism, or structure) that serves or appears to serve an important function in achieving evolutionary success You are entitled to have a long-term plan and view of your impact on the organisation as a part of the whole.

Having trust in your data is essential to relying on your analyses to make business decisions. In this Community Post, we will highlight some of the ways your data may change over time if you are pulling the same report within Mixpanel (even when the date range, filters, etc. do not change). The goal here is to explain common discrepancies in reporting so you can feel fully confident as you navigate the different Mixpanel reports. You’ll be walked through this exercise by Ryan, one of our Professional Services Managers who has 5 years of experience working with various Mixpanel customers. Hi! User Properties versus Event Properties User properties are mutable, meaning they can change over time. On the contrary, event properties are immutable, meaning they will not change over time. Since user properties change, if I pull a report today that
Updates to Insights Global FiltersMPKnowledgeDrop
Every week, we will release tips to help you get the most out of Mixpanel. Want to see more? Click here to see other #mpknowledgedrop articles. Hi everyone! I am Vlado, one of Mixpanel’s PMs here. We’re making a small update to the Insights Query Builder to simplify the UI and to make it consistent with the rest of the core reports. We will be migrating in the next couple of weeks all of the existing bookmarks that use Global ‘Or’ filter operator to use the custom property or inline cohort instead as these are more powerful. We are making this change as only 1% of Insights bookmarks have used the ‘or’ operator feature in global filters and we have a better workaround, custom properties & inline cohorts, that are more powerful. As of today, you will be still able to edit your saved bookmarks that use the ‘Or’ operator in global filters in Insights, but you will no longer be able to create a new report using this feature. Over the next couple of weeks, we will migrate these re

If you want to send a message to your users when they view your Help pages, you could set a property once they’ve viewed your Help pages. Similarly, if you want to check in with your users two days after they viewed a Help page, you could store the date of the last time they viewed a resource.Store date or numeric data types instead of booleans when possible.Because Mixpanel allows you to cast people properties on the fly, a Date property type can be cast as a Boolean. If it is set, it will resolve to True. If it is not set or doesn’t
