What you will learn
This Google Data Studio dashboard shows two views that are built on top of the AppLovin Reporting API for ULRD & Tenjin’s DataVault. It helps you understand how much revenue is generated by your apps after an install, grouped by install data or campaign ID, and how much progress the apps have made over time.
How it works
The data is pulled from the AppLovin API and Tenjin’s attribution. You could either use this dashboard to build your own ETL view of the cohort data, or use Growth FullStack’s managed ETL services to analyze the data.
AppLovin User Level Revenue Data (ULRD) with Tenjin attribution
The goal of this training is to allow you to analyse granular AppLovin revenue data with Tenjin attribution. The Google Data Studio dashboard has two views:
- Revenue from Applovin MAX ULRD/cohorted by days since install, sorted by install date
- Revenue from Applovin MAX ULRD/cohorted by days since install, sorted by campaign ID
Customize your dashboard to meet your needs
This dashboard is built on top of anonymized data from the AppLovin Reporting API and Tenjin DataVault, and can be easily customized for your apps. Customers who want to run their own ETL can use this dashboard to understand the use cases of both datasets and spec out the view your data analysts should build.

Google Data Studio Dashboard views
The Google Data Studio dashboard has the following two views to see your Applovin MAX ULRD data joined on user-level with Tenjin’s DataVault data. Both views allow you to analyze how much revenue your apps are generating after an install.
- View 1: Revenue from Applovin MAX ULRD/cohorted by days since install, and sorted by install date
- View 2: Revenue from Applovin MAX ULRD/cohorted by days since install, and sorted by campaign ID
Both these views can be split by further dimensions, such as site ID
Can this dashboard be personalized as per my requirements?
Yes. In the Calculated Fields section of Data Studio, you will be able to see the available fields, metrics and dimensions from the Applovin MAX revenue reporting API & Tenjin DataVault.
Your Growth FullStack Account Manager will be able to show them how to personalize the dashboard.
Is this dashboard supported with other tools?
