  • Show churn instead of retention.
  • Show latency tables (time elapsed before and after an inclusion event).
  • Customize cohort dimension (to group visitors based on an eVar, not just time).
  • Do a rolling cohort calculation: calculate retention/churn based on prior time period, not original cohort.
  • Add in multiple metrics in inclusion & return fields, as well as apply segments. (Calculated metrics are not supported)
