Shortcuts in Google Analytics!Posted by on October 29, 2012 08:02 AM
Everyone who uses Google Analytics has different needs. If you’re an executive you need different data than a marketer. If you work in an ecommerce business you want to view different data than someone in the publishing business.
Recently Google announced the launch of Shortcuts in Google Analytics. “Rather than having to go through the ‘find report, add segment, change, sort’ process daily, with Shortcuts you can do it once, save it, and come back to it in a single click,” says Andrew Seguin from Google’s Analytics team.
Shortcuts are a way to save almost any customization to a report.
The shortcuts will save standard or custom reports for context, the currently viewed tab on the report, sort order, advanced segments and graphed metric. They will not, however, save date ranges or sample sizes. Google says this is because they’re dependent on the data you’re looking at. If you need to save something to the shortcut, just make sure you click save from the utility bar.
