How it's measured?
Churn Breakdown by Activation Date = (Number of Churned Subscriptions per Subscription Term).
: Activation period can be 0-7, 8- 30, or 31-90. The Activation date is when the Subscription moves into ACTIVE status on a free or paid plan.


  • This report proves to be a great way to understand the stage at which Cancellations happen if the Churn is high. A late-stage cancellation indicates the product's inability to scale with the Customer's growing needs. In this case, you have to understand what features the Customer would need as their business grows and implement that into your product's roadmap.
  • Example: For Cancellations within the last 12 months,
    100 Subscriptions CANCELLED within 7 days upon Activation
    120 Subscriptions CANCELLED between 8- 30 days after Activation
    95 Subscriptions CANCELLED between 91 to 120 days after Activation and so on.
