Pendo Free homepage

Last updated:

Pendo uses the Monthly Active Users (MAU) metric to monitor the number of unique, active visitors in your app within the last 30 days. MAU serves as a valuable overall health indicator for your product, so it's important to monitor this metric to track trends in user activity and identify changes in user behavior over time.

The Pendo Free homepage provides a dedicated platform to effortlessly monitor your MAU count and access a variety of resources to help you maximize your experience with Pendo.

Note: For brand new subscriptions, the homepage offers personalized guidance on getting started. This includes step-by-step instructions tailored to your needs, such as installing Pendo, tagging Pages, and creating funnels, guides, or roadmaps. After you've completed these initial setup steps, you'll gain access to the homepage elements detailed in this article.

Track monthly active users

The Monthly active users (MAU) tracker section at the top of the homepage gives you high-level insights into your app's user engagement. This section features a progress bar that visually illustrates your current MAU count in relation to the maximum threshold for your plan.


Within this section, you can also find a few key metrics related to your MAU threshold:

  • Current MAU count. The number of visitors that have interacted with your app within the last 30 days. This count is continuously updated and provides real-time data on unique, active visitors during the most recent 30-day period.
  • Highest MAU count. The highest number of active visitors who interacted with your app over the last 90 days. This metric identifies the maximum level of user engagement recorded over the last 90 days, giving you visibility into your app's peak user engagement level.
  • Rolling MAU average. The average number of active visitors over a rolling 30-day period within the last 90 days. This metric is updated regularly as each 30-day window progresses.

Tip: Even if you've exceeded the MAU threshold for your plan, the homepage always shows you an accurate visitor count.

Monitor weekly visitors

The Weekly visitors line chart provides you with the total number of MAU who interacted with your app over the last 90 days to help you stay informed about your app's engagement trends.


To view your full list of visitors, see View all visitors in the top-right corner of the chart. This opens the Visitors page where you can search for or select a specific visitor to open the Visitor Details page. (If you've exceeded your MAU threshold, you might not see data for some visitors on the Visitors or Visitor Details pages. To learn more, see MAU limits.)
