How many active users last month?


(Alessio Fattorini) #1

I want gather this data, for active users i mean registered users who made a post at least in the last month.
I guess that i can have this just with a data filter on users export action, in this way I can answer questions like:

  • How man new members (registered last month) made a post at least?
  • How many active users against two months ago or last year?
  • Who are the active users lat month?

Can you suggest me any better way?
Read this but also playing with GA it’s impossibile to extract such data

Strangely enough - I think this information is shown in the “about” menu option but not in the regular admin interface:

Which then brings this up:

Sort of, active means they logged in, not that they posted.

I can have hundred of logged in users but if anyone posts it’s unuseful.
And in this way how can I compare?
And how can I know who not just how many?

Am I the only one who wants a feature such this? :slight_smile:

Sorry for bump this, but I need to know active members where for active users i mean registered users who made a post at least in the last month.
Is there any way?

Go to /users then select month and order by replies.

Sorry, not who but how many! Users counts also 0 posts people

Sort by number of posts, scroll down and count.

Another possibility is to export Users as a CSV file (it may take a while if you have a lot of members) and then you can write a custom script to do all kinds of amazing things :smiley:

Eheh :smile: Jeff be serious please! Counting manually hundreds of member every month is not smart :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Edit: I know, you’re asking me why. That’s my why:

I need to count engagement then count “poster” people is more interesting than just “logged in”, even though interesting
What do you think?

Thanks for the suggestion! I just exported the csv and used “last_post_at” thanks very much.
At the time of my first post this field was not present

2 posts were split to a new topic: Why are the last-month post counts different?
