Custom Metrics in Polymer: Apr 6, 2023

You can now create custom metrics in Polymer! Learn about this exciting new feature & other meaningful updates this week.

Custom metrics

We’re excited to announce our custom metrics! You can now create simple calculations in Polymer using numerical columns. These come in handy when you need to quickly add a calculated field to a visualization or if you need weighted averages for important ratios like CPC or Margin/Unit!

Custom metrics can be added from the dropdown menu of any field in any chart. For example, in the dropdown of the metric field in a scorecard. Open up the dropdown menu & click [Create Custom Metric] from the bottom of the list. Then, simply follow the prompts through to set up your desired calculations. Once saved, you’ll be able to use that new custom metric in all of our blocks! The loom video below shows this process as well.

This is just our first version & we’ll continue improving from here. If you're in need of any calculations that we don’t support, please reach out & let us know!

New dynamic date filters

New options in our dynamic date filters include “Previous week”, “Previous month”, & “Previous year”.

For example, I can filter to always check the previous completed week or month in my dashboard or compare a metric in my scorecard to it’s performance in the previous week or month.
