Announcing Data Explorer 2.0 – Build Custom Funnels Without Code!

We’re super excited to announce support for funnels in the new Data Explorer! Funnels are one of our most popular analysis types, and now you can create funnel queries with multiple steps and visualize the results right inside the Explorer.

Funnels are a powerful type of analysis for answering questions with multiple stages, such as user retention and drop-off, attribution analysis from referrals and campaigns, advanced user targeting, and more.

With Keen, there’s no limit to the range of custom funnels you can build. But previously, you had to write code to get the results. Now, you can quickly build any custom funnel in the Explorer, like this:


Need more steps? No problem. Here’s an example of a custom 5-step funnel:


You can learn more about using funnels in our docs or our Intro to Funnels Guide. But funnels aren’t the only thing we’ve added.

So what else is new in Data Explorer 2.0?

For those of you that don’t know, the Data Explorer is a point-and-click interface for querying and visualizing your event data. It interacts directly with Keen IO’s custom analytics APIs. Since the initial release of the open source Explorer, we’ve made a bunch of improvements, including:

A visual refresh

We’ve restructured the Explorer’s interface and made buttons easier to find and understand. We’ve also smoothed out the rough edges and made the entire query builder and visualization area more cohesive and consistent.

Support for saved and cached queries

The new Explorer lists out all your project’s saved and cached queries for easy loading, and it also lets you create new ones, edit existing ones, and delete any you no longer want. You can get all the details in this blog post.

A boatload of bug fixes

We’ve fixed quite a few little bugs that have popped up since our initial open source release, so the Explorer is running smoother than ever.

What else would you like to see?

We’re excited to be working on the Explorer out in the open and we’d love for you and your team to participate in making this project more useful for everyone! Feel free to log an issue for a bug you’ve found or an improvement you think makes sense. And of course, we’re always open to pull requests for bug fixes and improvements.

So what are you waiting for? Try out Explorer 2.0 for free on Keen IO or download the latest from Github, NPM, or our CDN. Check out https://github.com/keen/explorer for all of the Explorer usage options.
