What is a Template?
Templates can be opened on top of end-user's project, basically like files. Templates consist of plugins, questions and analytics-based components such as reports, virtual user properties and user segments. Finally, Insights are act as a glue that brings all components together — using a simple to use JS/JSX API — and results in generating insights from the data for end-users.
Furthermore, they can be customized in any way, so each one can specialize in AB-testing, campaign marketing analytics, webshop user clustering, deployable predictions, and more. Due to its customizability, it's possible to dig deep into the data and focus on specific niches such as gaming, social apps or webshops.
