A NOTE ON THE PUGPIG METRICS USED IN THIS REPORT 

This report uses the Pugpig event SearchPerformed, an instance of this event along with the term searched for is tracked every time a search is performed in the app. The search term is recorded in the Event Label which is what we are surfacing in this report. If a user clicks the search button before adding a search term to the search bar the Event Label returned will be '(not set)'.
