A custom template is a combination of KPIs and dimensions. You can use custom templates to get data from multiple fact tables or summarized data, say at user level, transaction-level, or points level. Use custom templates to export data at a granular level. Each combination of a KPI and dimension value forms a column of an export file. For example, you can use a standard template to export transaction-level dump, if you need transactions at user level, you need to use custom templates.

Limitations of custom templates

  • You can choose up to 5 dimensions per template.
  • You cannot export custom fields, and measures (such as bill id, bill number, bill amount, auto-update time) in custom templates. You can export only KPIs and their dimensions.
