Pros and Cons

  • Simple and easy to set up and well documented.
  • Event data and the ability to send messages being integrated works really well.
  • Reports are easy to peruse.
  • Mobile app is handy.
  • A smaller paid plan would be great, instead of the $89 right now.
  • Additional user tracking features in one system would be great to have.

Pros and Cons

  • Mixpanel's ease of use is easily their best feature, allowing you to quickly create graphs with a few point and clicks. Their UI is also fairly snappy and well-designed.
  • Tying together events with user attributes allows you to properly segment users into cohorts which can then be tracked individually. Proper segmentation is where most analytics solutions earn their keep.
  • Live view is a nice perk that gives you a good feel for who's on your site and what they're doing at any single point in time. This can be further filtered to focus on particular events of interest.
  • Mixpanel has flexible plans that work for smaller startups as well.
  • Their documentation is top notch.
  • Mixpanel requires an explicit setting of events from your app. This means you need to be very thoughtful in the design of your events because missing one means you aren't collecting any data from it. Inserting it into the process later on then brings challenges in tracking when certain events came online.
  • A tool like Mixpanel comes packed with features that sometimes are harder to discover. It's very easy to get sucked into one part of its toolset and not be aware of other tools which may be very useful.

Pros and Cons

  • Flexible. Custom attributes and messages can be sent, which can later be used to slice and dice the data however you want.
  • The UI allows you to filter, group, aggregate, and visualize the data in many ways - whether you want to look at a high-level graph or a detailed table of data.
  • Easy to integrate into application. You don't do much work. We use it both in our Python and React code-bases.
  • Sometimes Mixpanel can be slow, specifically when the size of the data you're tracking gets extremely large.
  • While the out of the box functionality is great, you are limited to the functionality provided by a third-party library. If you wanted to customize the look and feel into your own companies applications and styles, you probably need to import the data and build your own visualizations.
  • Can be a little costly. Hopefully your organization can pay for the service, because it is very useful. If not, you might need to use some alternatives and build a home-grown solution.

Pros and Cons

  • Mixpanel integrates seamlessly with Segment, our data capture tool. We can use this abstraction later to capture user behavior details and send it to Mixpanel with no additional coding.
  • Mixpanel allows us to create user behavior funnels that can easily pinpoint problem areas in a user process, from which we can take action to correct and monitor changes in funnel conversion as a result.
  • Mixpanel enables easy visualization of user event data without the need for IT intervention.
  • Mixpanel documentation is helpful but often glosses over nuances in the use of their features that can lead to misinterpretation of the results.
  • The “Signals” functionality is tempting but not useful. I have never seen it produce significant results despite having a tremendous amount of data.
  • Having the ability to easily roll up projects into a larger project without having to duplicate data is a major missing piece that detracts from the overall value of this product.

Pros and Cons

  • Mixpanel is great at tracking any kind of events in your app or website, as well as for sending user properties (e.g. age, country and any other info you want)
  • It's also great that Mixpanel works almost real-time
  • I like how Mixpanel's funnels work even on the past events. You can create any kind of funnel and track it and also see the breakdown of the funnel performance by different groups e.g. by age, by country, etc.
  • Sometimes their servers are overloaded and the data isn't coming real-time, but they fix those kinds of issues pretty fast
  • If you track a lot of custom events, it takes a lot of developer time to implement capturing those events

Pros and Cons

  • I'm in sales, so it's really important for me to understand who is using our solution in which region. Mixpanel allows querying based off a number of factors including location.
  • Setting up multiple queries that I can run is really easy. I didn't need IT involvement to set them up.
  • Once you run a query, you can drill down and discover more information about the people using the product and how they use it.
  • No real cons from my perspective.

Pros and Cons

  • Great for behavioral analytics. It helps answer questions like: "how many unique users did X last week?" or "what percentage of users chose options A, B, or C for this process.
  • The "live" view is awesome for keeping an eye on certain things. For example - release a new feature? Set up a live view filter to watch your users engage with that new feature. You can sometimes notice problems very quickly this way.
  • Good visuals / graphs. Many options for choosing how you want to display or segment your data. Examples: linear, rolling log, etc. Can easily specify that you want Total, Avg, Unique or other counts.
  • Very good, detailed support. I've never been disappointed by a response.
  • The trigger based messaging system is sub-par and we don't use it. It may have improved in the last year, but we do all our messaging with Intercom and haven't looked back. The UI was clunky, and I recall that it was very difficult to create certain triggers. What you want is "when user does X+Y, but hasn't done Z, then send them a message". I recall that being very hard to set up and test.
  • You can't create segments or tagged groups of users which you then use in analytic reports. This may be possible using their new Cohorts feature, but that is only available with Enterprise. What I want to be able to do is define a user segment who has done XYZ as "XYZ Group" and then filter my analytic and behavior reports by those segments. Huge gap (that may be solved by the Enterprise version, but this is way beyond our means).

Pros and Cons

  • Has a web console that allows raw high-level analysis.
  • Supports an API for downloading data for external processing.
  • Reliability of the export API. The service can sometimes become unavailable causing issues in the middle of the night for critical post processing jobs.
  • Duplicate data. Some events being streamed to Mixpanel are being stored multiple times causing bloated numbers.
  • Missing data. There are times when the export results to less data than expected. Because of how it works under the hood, there are certain limitations on how new data can be exported and there's no way to guarantee that you're getting all your data.

Pros and Cons

  • Track users' activities
  • Create funnels
  • User Segmentation
  • Mixpanel doesn't do a user search when I write a full name of a user, it takes only the first name hence making things difficult and complicated.
  • I cannot compare traffic sources between multiple date ranges, e.g. compare traffic sources for Nov 2018 vs Dec 2018.
  • Error showing mechanism is very bad. User is typing at the bottom and error is shown at the top so a user doesn't even know why things are not moving forward.
  • It's very slow.

Pros and Cons

  • Easily integrates with Segment which makes setting up event/people tracking very easy if you're already using Segment with other tools.
  • Creating quick reports to share with your team is really easy and the visuals are nice looking. If you launch a new feature, you can quickly create a nice looking graph to share with your product team to let them know how things are going.
  • The Live feed of events on each People profile is really cool if you need to drill into a user flow. Also, if you're not using FullStory, this live view is a great way to help users with issues since you'll know the exact set of events related to their issue.
  • I didn't use the engagement features at all but it seems like they could have a better WYSIWYG editor for the emails for non-technical people using Mixpanel.
  • The custom reports feature seems to be really powerful but I wish they had more resources/templates for creating custom reports. I don't code so it was really hard for me to use this feature...BUT the reports I was able to get help with, were really powerful.
  • I wanted a dashboard area for all of my reports in one view. It seems like they were implementing this when I was moving jobs. If it's not available yet, they definitely need to add a master dashboard page for arranging saved reports.

Pros and Cons

  • Real-time analytics
  • A/B testing
  • User Interface (it's logical and easy to understand)
  • Push notifications sometimes had delays/errors and this meant us sending out erroneous messages to users.

Pros and Cons

  • Allows to track all activity that is happening on our website.
  • Funnel tracking is very good, it shows on what stage of their sign up process a particular group of users are.
  • A/B testing is also good, I'd say it's even better than in Google Analytics.
  • Reports are not visual enough and sometimes there is some missing or incorrect data.
  • Mixpanel does not provide a phone support, just email.
  • User Interface looks nice, but it is not very user friendly and it is sometimes hard to find what you need on the page.

Pros and Cons

  • Handling thousands/millions of data points with ease, keeping track with historical usage data.
  • Segmentation of existing user base.
  • Funnels of module usage (very useful for free trial conversion of clients).
  • Has a steep learning curve. It is a bit daunting to use at first unless you have dived into tutorials and you know exactly what you are looking for.
  • JQL queries are very powerful and useful but lack documentation.
  • The predict module seems very useful but requires precision and the correct data set up to provide accurate predictions.
