Widget Guide for Appbot Dashboards

Appbot Dashboards allows you to build your own reports on app reviews by choosing widgets that offer the metrics you’re interested in measuring. This guide provides a brief description of each widget.

The results for each widget will reflect the time period you have selected for the Dashboard, as well as any filters you have applied to that particular widget (such as country, version or star rating).

If you’ve applied filters to a widget we recommend renaming that widget to reference those filters. You can do this in the Edit Widget screen.
