Honestly can’t believe such basic metrics are not clearly visible, would be great if someone can assist.
I would like to know how many sessions a user does on average, PER MONTH or PER WEEK, SINCE August 1st. Then I would like to determine, on average, how long does each session last (I think I have already done this part). Finally, I would like to know, the average amount of time spent on the app per user, per month, SINCE August 1st. Ie, Cohort X, spends 60 mins per month on average since august 1st.
Currently the only way to determine sessions a user does on average is the following. App Session, Total per User, Aggregate by Average. If you set the time period to say 3 months however, it tells you the total number of sessions done by that cohort in 3 months. This isn’t correct. And you cannot simply divide it by 3 either. If you do that, you’re saying everyone in that cohort has been there for 3 months, which is not correct. The goal here is to identify, AVERAGE TIME PER MONTH PER USER.
Secondly, when comparing Total App Sessions vs Total Session Start, my data is showing that Session Starts are less than Total Sessions. How is that fundamentally possible? For every app session, there has to be a session start. If anything, App session can only be <= Session Start, because there can be a lot of sessions that are less than the default 10 second Session definition. My session setup is all default btw, 30 mins as timeout, and 10 seconds as min session length.
