Accurate event ordering with Millisecond Precision

Related products: Data Access/Permissions

Say hello to accurate event ordering with Millisecond Precision. Now, even if you have multiple events happening within the same second, Mixpanel has the power to decipher the exact sequence those events occurred.

Check out any Flows report to view millisecond level of precision first hand!

 

Before you can view events at Millisecond Precision, please make note of two key points:

  1. You need to update your SDK to ingest events with millisecond timestamp. All previous versions only track at second precision. The minimum versions that support ms timestamp are as follows: 
  • Swift - 3.3.0
  • Obj-C - 4.2.0
  • Android - 6.3.0
  • Flutter - 1.6.0
  • React Native - 1.5.0 
  • Unity - 3.3.0
  • Javascript - historical versions have already been tracking ms timestamp. No action to be taken if using this sdk

         Note: If you are sending data into Mixpanel via a CDP or the DWH, no change is required at               your end if you’re already tracking data at ms precision.

  1. Only forward looking data will be tracked at ms precision. This means that once you update your SDK, it will take some time to accumulate data with ms precision before you can start seeing it reflected in your analysis. 

 

How would you know if you’re tracking events at ms precision?

Go to the Events Page and check the time-stamp of an event. If you’re ingesting at milli-second precision, you will notice it in the time-stamp link below:

 

We hope you enjoy a higher degree of accuracy with Millisecond Precision!

Hi Luke, this is great news, we’ve been waiting for a long time for this feature. If we use the segment → mixpanel integration to get the data into Mixpanel, is there any changes we need to do?
Thanks and appreciate this work, now we can finally use flow reports. 


Hi Matias, thanks for the feedback - 

If you are tracking data on your end at the ms level, then no change is required. Mixpanel will be able to process the data at ms precision as it is sent and return precise flows.

If you want ms precision but are not tracking data on your end at the ms level, then you would need to change the tracking model.

Hope you enjoy the update!


This issue alone was going to be the thing that stopped us signing up.

We also need Unity support for this feature. The latest Unity SDK update is April 30th. I assume it is not included there yet?

Nevermind, it looks like events sent from Unity already have millisecond precision.

Hi! 

Version 3.3.0 of the Mixpanel-Unity SDK now supports millisecond timestamps for events. 

Let us know if you have any follow ups 👍
