Using the persons modal

Clicking on a data point in a trends insight opens the persons modal, which shows you a list of users/groups that performed it during the selected time period.

All persons who performed an event

From this menu, you can:

  • Watch specific session replays where the user performed the selected event
  • Dive deep into the properties of each individual user
  • Save the entire list of users as a cohort
  • Export the list of users to a CSV for further analysis

Creating insights in notebooks

You can create all of PostHog's insight types natively in Notebooks. These include trends, funnels, retention, paths, stickiness, lifecycle, and SQL.

Each of them can be completely customized within notebooks like you would in insights. To do this, click the three-line reverse pyramid icon.

You can also add insights from the insights list by clicking, holding, and dragging the title onto the right-side popover.

Add units / custom prefixes and postfixes

You can change the unit of any trends insights, or add custom prefixes/postfixes - e.g. with a prefix of $, 123.45 will be displayed as "$123.45".

Units include duration (seconds or milliseconds) and percentage.

Unit and prefix options

To do so, click on 'Options' dropdown next to the chart type and select the one you want.

Series legend

Also under the 'Options' dropdown is the ability to enable values on trends, and the legend, like in the screenshot above.

View source (Beta)

Insight filters follow a declarative format that you can view and edit. To do so, open the insight editor by clicking on the {} icon next to the save insight button and you will see the source for the current insight configuration.

Using this editor you can copy-and-paste complete or partial insights and understand what is going on under the hood. We admit this is a bit of a power user feature, but if you're so inclined you might even find it easier to edit insights this way.
