Default Event Tracking as part of our Browser SDK 2.0

Hi customers! Today we’re excited to announce our Browser SDK 2.0 update, which includes Default Event Tracking. What is Default Event Tracking (DET)? Default Event Tracking logs generic and common events when setting up applicable SDKs, accelerating your time to insights. We’ll be updating our Browser SDK to automatically instrument and track a predefined set of events.Here are the default events and event properties:  Page Viewed Page Domain Page Location Page Path Page Title Page URL Form Started Form ID Form Name Form Destination Form Submitted Form ID Form Name Form Destination File Downloaded File Extension File Name Link ID Link Text Link URL Start Session End SessionWhat does this mean for you? Default event tracking provides customers significant value since it removes some of the burden to instrument and define every event. But, default event tracking does apply to your event volume. For new customers, if you choose the Browser SDK, you’ll be instructed to download the new version with Default Event Tracking during onboarding. For existing customers, you’ll get notified to upgrade to the latest version of the SDK and need to manually turn Default Event Tracking off if you prefer to not track these events automatically.How can I turn off or block the events from Default Event Tracking? You can choose which DET events you want to turn off or on within the init code snippet. Please take a look at this doc for the snippet. You can also block or delete these events in our Data product. Deleted events will not show up in your analyses.Please look here in our Dev Docs for more details. Thank you!

A side-by-side view with controls on the left and chart on the right enables instantaneous feedback on how changes impact the chart, helping you better explore your data. New Responsive Layout means users can click and drag the controls wider to have more space, and at a certain point, the segment card “snaps” to the top of the controls in a format that is similar to our older layout. This gives the user more vertical real estate to build out many events+filters or lengthy segments. Improved drop-down experience removes the guesswork from chart creation by adding new descriptions, categories, and metadata to the drop-down selector. The new experience will be available to preview starting in April for the following charts: Event Segmentation Funnels Pathfinder Data Tables Retention User Composition Sessions Users with new side controls can access these features by opting into the early beta preview.

Amplitude Data is Generally Available

Earlier this year, we introduced a beta version of Amplitude Data — a central hub for data management in Amplitude that combines Govern, Sources, and Destinations with new planning and data observability features. We've been incorporating your feedback and improving performance. Today, we are excited to announce that we're removing the Beta label and making Amplitude Data generally available!In case you're new to Amplitude Data, the new experience improves your ability to: Plan: Leave outdated spreadsheets and one-off Confluence pages behind, and use an always up-to-date tracking plan you can evolve with your team. You can proactively plan events and properties directly in Amplitude during development and instrument events accurately from the get-go. Verify: New observability features let you monitor incoming data and immediately identify issues. You'll be able to verify incoming data against your tracking plan and identify potential problems to help you improve your data quality. Collaborate: With branches, you can have a working copy of your tracking plan you can develop with your team. No need for v2/v3/v4 versions of a spreadsheet — you can iterate with your team in a branch, then merge once you're ready. You can also ensure your team is up-to-speed with commenting support and Slack notifications. Enterprise and Govern Add-on customers also have access to advanced data management features in Amplitude Data, including transformations that help clean up your data and derived properties that let you use formulas to create new properties retroactively.Customers with the Accounts add-on will also be able to move to the new experience soon. The Accounts add-on allows you to perform analyses by custom groups (for example, by companies instead of by individual users). Amplitude Data provides additional capabilities to plan and manage these group types and properties. Over the coming weeks, we're also adding support for Portfolio and working on a new version of the Taxonomy API.Check out the Amplitude Academy Course to see Amplitude Data in action, find more details in our help documentation, and stay tuned to get your migration notification in your email with more information about the new experience.
