The Progress data report provides an overview of how your hackathon is progressing over a period of time. The data may also help you make conclusions about your hackathon’s results, such as comparing the marketing efforts of one week to another based on how many new registrants were added.
The Progress data report is split into 4 tabs:
- Registrations and Submissions. Key metrics on registrants, teams, and projects. Note that there is a comparison between a specified date range and the overall total.
- Locations. As shown in the Country Data report, this tab also shows the number of registrants and submitters from specific countries.
- UTM conversion. Displays a comprehensive view of the conversion rate from registrant to submitter via UTMs.
- Initial referrer conversion. A user may have first landed on your hackathon page without being referred by another website; this report shows the registrant to conversion rate of those initial referring websites. Examples of initial referrers include users who may have typed the hackathon page address directly, clicked on a bookmark, clicked a link from an email, or might have security settings in their browser that prevent referrer data from being passed.
To view the progress data, navigate to the manage area of your hackathon then click Manage hackathon > Metrics. In this view, you’ll see your hackathon’s dashboard.
Under the Export submission and registrant data section, select the progress data report, specify the date range for your data, and click the blue Generate report > Download report buttons and a .csv file of the conversion data will be available for you.
How can I use the Progress data report?
This report helps you track the progress of your hackathon, allowing you to draw conclusions on the success of your efforts. It can also be a useful tool to adjust how you engage with participants. For example, if you’re noticing that many of your registrants are looking for teammates, you may want to send a mass update to prompt participants to use the community chat (if available) as an option to collaborate.
