Metric Groups

Metric Groups allow you to customize your site speed dashboard to see the metrics you care about most.

Select custom metrics on the dashboard

A dropdown menu on the project dashboards offers a selection of pre-defined metric groups as well as custom metric groups you've saved in your account.

Select a metric group to view trendlines for the selected set of metrics. The dropdown at the bottom of the menu shows what metrics are included in the current group and lets you select additional metrics.

In this screenshot the Lighthouse metric group is selected, which includes the four lighthouse category scores.
