We are making changes to our insights page. If you are reading this article, you may have used our previous insights page which we will be phasing out on 1 May 2021. We are replacing it with an in-depth insights page.

You may ask: “what was wrong with our previous insights page?”, the simple answer is nothing. Like any other part of this platform, we are an ever-evolving platform. We always want to provide our users with information that is useful in their daily lives. Information that can be used to advance their daily lives. Our previous insights page had a few things which we felt are useful to the the users of Qlikstrim.io, namely,

a) The global downloads which we have retained,

b) The growth statistics which are a 7-day snapshot of your weekly growth, and

c) The downloads by countries and the top 3 of your most downloaded content.

The new insights page retains these insights but includes new functionalities. We sort to provide clarity on the relevance on some of these functionalities and on why they are important and how they can be used.
