Change the date range on that to 1-6-18 to 1-6-20 so it shows a full two
years, and it shows the exact same dip last January...
You can also click "All" and you will see the full set of time we
have data for(Aug 1 2018 and forward). It defaults to 1y because
that's the most useful cyclical period we have. Month-to-month and
week-to-week have a lot of variation. There are 3 yearly, temporary
slumps: Christmas, Easter, and August which is European Vacation
Our user base is heavily business oriented so any time that people
are not working, we see dips. This is also why older versions cycle
up in % on the % adi graph during the week, and down on weekends.
Business users are slightly more likely to be using older versions,
and they are a lower proportion of users on weekends.<br>
P.S. You can click version numbers in the legend at the bottom of
the graph on the % page to make lower % items easier to see.<br>
In the future, I suggest looking at global stats(or at least <a
which accounts for ~85% of users) to compare to before panicking.
It's always important to remember that any major shift over a short
time period is far more likely to be a data artifact than a real
