Total Subscribers Growth = gain control over the daily growth/ loss of the subscribers of the channel by receiving graphs for the maximum, minimum and average changes in the selected time period.
Total Time Viewed = measures the overall time users spend watching videos in the channel. For example if a channel has 5 videos and each video has 20 seconds, the Total Time Viewed would be 100 seconds.
