Is It Possible to Remove Reports from Google Analytics?

Are you trying to remove Google Analytics’ weekly analytics reports? Here’s what you need to do to remove them.

Transcript:

Remember the report that we set up for every week? I saw you said we could extend it. But I made some changes, and I made a new one. Under admin, where it gives us the option to extend or remove all, are we allowed to remove things from there? I remember when you said don’t remove a report, but I didn’t know if that was in the exact location.

So you’re allowed to add and remove whatever you want. And the way to do it is from the admin section. I was trying to warn you that, within each emailed report from Google Analytics, if you click the link in the email saying “I no longer want to get this report,” Google Analytics will no longer send any messages to your email address. You won’t be able to say, “Okay, I would like to start sending it again.” Then Google Analytics won’t send it because you’ve said, “No, we don’t want to get this.” It’s a glitch in Google Analytics. So if you’re going to turn off dashboards or reports from Google Analytics, be sure to log into your admin and do it that way, or Google analytics will stop sending any notifications. This could be a problem if you want to get it later.

But those reports, can I add more information to them?

I’m providing the dashboard as a starting point. Please feel free to customize it to what you think is valuable. I know, for instance, Ali has customized her dashboard for things like social media in which she’s more interested.

Okay, I wasn’t sure if I could change it after setting it up to send me emails every week.

I’m going back through your list. When I went back through it, I realized that some stuff was missing. I stopped getting my monthly reports and had to redo that again. Are we doing stuff?

I’m glad you’re going back. I have to go back through it as well. To make sure everything is still set up with each step. I try to recommend that you go back every so often Because sometimes Google changes something, and you’ll have to fix it, or something goes wrong. I tried to provide suggestions on how often I would check these.
