by Joseph K. Clark

Developers can now customize and pin the precise metrics that matter to them in a personalized KPI section at the top of their Google Play Console application dashboard. Google provides an extensive list of available metrics, including the new engagement and peer-to-peer comparisons that make it easy to find what developers want so they can select and edit dimensions and filters to suit exact needs. In addition to suggested metrics, developers can pin any other dashboard card to their KPIs.  “There are as many ways to customize your KPIs as people use the console. Instead of seeing default KPIs, now everyone can have a customized dashboard showing exactly the metrics that matter to their workflows,” Tom Grinsted, product manager for Google Play, wrote in a post.

New features include a catalog of reusable process components that work across technologies, RPA modernization with point-and-click orchestration across RPA tools, enhanced process analytics, and dashboards.  “Providing professional developers with the best and most productive experience is critical for enterprise-scale processes and applications. At the same time, a wide range of processes in large enterprises need automation and process designers with different backgrounds and skill sets.
