Vanilla has three analytics options; the one available in your Vanilla community is dependent on when you became a Vanilla customer and/or your plan level.
- Vanilla Statistics is our most basic analytics feature. It is available as the default (and only) option for our older customers on our Basic and lower plans.
- Advanced Analytics is the default option for our more recent customers, featuring a more robust suite of analytics data.
- Analytics BETA (an updated version of Advanced Analytics) is our most feature-rich analytics offering. It is the default option for all new Vanilla customers, and is available to all cloud customers who have Advanced Analytics as part of their subscription.
