Frequently asked questions

Do I need to do anything when I release a new app version?

No, guides and analytics will work seamlessly on your new app version. If any of your mobile pages have changed dramatically in a new app version and stopped sending analytics, we will alert you via our Page Alerts and instruct you on how to fix your tagged pages

When will the data appear?

As with Pendo web analytics, data is processed at the top of the hour, every hour. Processing times can take up to 15 minutes after the hour, depending on the amount of data. 

Known limitations 

  • You might not be able to tag some controls in your app, or they might not collect analytics. Mobile technologies keep advancing and we're working to keep up. Let us know if you don't manage to tag something by contacting Pendo Support.
  • When two pages have the exact same structure, you must select an additional label to distinguish between the pages. Read here to learn more.
  • Our default page and feature rules, which are critical to getting the correct analytics, sometimes require refinement to match your specific app - make sure you understand your options for page and feature tagging.
