Average session duration - higher is negative

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

In a data studio board that I created I added 'average session duration'. It's comparing with last period (30 days) and says that the average session duration has increased with 77%, so the errow points upwards. The weirdest thing is that the errow is red, so it looks like it is a bad thing.

 

Can anyone explain to me why it is bad that the average session duration increased? (bounce percentage has decreased so the error points downwards and is green, because it's a good thing the bounce has decreased. That's why it looks like data studio is automatically giving meaning to the results)

hi Hanna, 

Don't be afraid, only the color is wrong. 

In the mode "Edition", select your component. 

On the right side, click on the tab "Style" and you can change color of the arrow up and down. 

 

It's in french, but you will understand Smiley Happy
