GrowthBook Version 1.6

Version 1.6 of GrowthBook includes big UI improvements when installing and configuring the platform, plus lots of time-saving improvements for existing users.

New data source form and pre-built schemas!

We’ve added built-in support for tons of additional event sources, including Firebase, Matomo, Heap, Jitsu, and Freshpaint! When adding a new data source, you’ll be presented with the above screen and based on your event source, we will pre-fill SQL queries and settings for you to help you get started quickly.

New Getting Started flow

We added a brand new onboarding flow when first installing GrowthBook. We also added a persistent “Get Started” section to the left nav so you can easily get back to where you left off. This new setup process will walk you through installing our SDK, adding a feature flag, connecting to a data source, and defining metrics.

Always show user counts in experiment results

When dealing with new experiments or experiments with low traffic, it’s not uncommon to have 0 conversion events on your goal metrics.

This change allows you to see the total traffic exposed to the experiment even when the number of conversion events are zero.

Support optional experiment/variation name columns

You can now select variation_name and experiment_name in the experiment exposure query to make the results more human readable. This setting can be adjusted in the ‘edit data sources’ modal.

Miscellaneous other features and fixes
