furthermore im wondering about the pageviews. does this truly need to be pageviews? the documentation states it is used to predict how long an experiment will take, but wouldn’t we need to have data on the target metrics to do so? (rather than pageviews)

it doesn't technically need to be page views, the naming here isn't ideal
And you're right, that query is used in conjunction with the metrics on our ideas board, to figure our duration, etc.

but how should we handle it if we have multiple metrics we use in testing then for this query? the example is hit based (counting rows to get number of pageviews), but can we also retrieve the actual metrics here or how should I go about this?

it's just for estimation, and not required at all. Do you have ideas that have multiple goal metrics?
when you set up the actual experiment, you can add as many metrics as you like
(even retroactively)

ok.. no we will have 1 target metric (sometimes calculated metric based on multiple other metrics) It’s probably because I’m in the mindset of what I’m currently doing in Jupyter Notebook. For the MDE and run time calculation I’m looking at the actual test metric.. 😉
I’m indeed now trying to see how we can get the data in GrowthBook for a test we already ran, just to try out the analytics/reporting. (seems great)

sounds good!
let us know if you have any thoughts or feedback.

I guess I need to create the test in growthbook, and then populate the data with it’s test ID ?
will do! 🙂

if you have the main data source connected, you can click on import past experiments, and we make that easy if you already have the data there
you will still need to add the metrics manually
