Data enrichment

Data enrichment
for a more powerful data model

Mixpanel is the only tool that supports true data enrichment. Our data model allows for retroactive enrichment, which joins historical events with new business data. We provide the most flexible way to answer your most important questions.

🚀 Unique to Mixpanel
  • Forgot something at implementation? No sweat. Easily enrich properties like “video name” with an additional field like “genre” to analyze video engagement in seconds.
  • Forego tedious data cleanup with retroactive changes to duplicate categories, e.g. “Action” vs “Action & Adventure”.
Flexible implementation

Easy implementation
& data maintenance

Our infrastructure computes critical details like sessions and top events at query time, so you don’t have to worry about setting everything up perfectly at implementation time.

🚀 Unique to Mixpanel
  • Update demographic or business data at any time with retroactive enrichment. Nothing’s perfect the first time around – give yourself breathing room to fix incorrect data.
Conversion analysis

conversion analysis

Mixpanel is the only product analytics tool that measures the total number of times users convert, and compares user journeys of users who convert to those who don’t.

🚀 Unique to Mixpanel
  • Compare two funnels or paths in the same chart
  • Segment by first or last touch attribution
  • Count the total conversions or repeat conversions by the same user. For example, how many app opens lead to bookings?
