Progress overview

Like a new pair of shoes, we are still getting used to the new platform; one core guild member told me they received so many emails in one day that they set up a special filter to send everything to the trash :weary:. Not what we are going for, so some changes have been made:

  • I have set it so the maximum number of notifications any user can receive within a week is 10
  • A few other minor global tweaks to the notification settings

You can also tweak your notification settings to get it exactly the way you want, and if you want help to get it just right, let me know.

If anyone has any other feedback, let us know!

Progress metrics

What is DAU/MAU? DAU/MAU, or Daily Active Users over Monthly Active Users, is a key performance indicator (KPI) commonly used in the tech industry to measure user engagement for a product, particularly digital platforms and applications. This ratio helps assess how often users engage with a platform within a given month.

To break it down:

  • DAU (Daily Active Users): The number of unique users who interact with the platform on any given day.
  • MAU (Monthly Active Users): The number of unique users who engage with the platform at least once within a 30-day period.

The DAU/MAU ratio is calculated by dividing the DAU by the MAU for the same time frame, typically resulting in a number between 0 and 1. For example, if you have 1000 DAUs and 5000 MAUs, your DAU/MAU ratio would be 0.2, or 20%.

A higher ratio suggests stronger user engagement, indicating that users are returning to the platform more frequently within the month. Conversely, a lower ratio suggests that while the platform may have a broad reach, it doesn’t command regular or frequent usage among its audience.

By monitoring DAU/MAU, businesses can better understand the ‘stickiness’ of their product, which can be invaluable for informing product development, user experience design, and marketing strategies.
