Most organizations divide their web traffic into Multiple Google Analytics Views. They do this for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to:
- organizational territories
- geographic territories
- product groups
- web site enhancements
Perhaps the most common reason is when your site has reached the maximum number of goals and events you can have on a View. Many web analysts will create additional Views when they need to establish new goals without overwriting ones that may not be in use but still historically relevant.
There are several ways that NEXT Analytics software allows you to select which Views included in a report:
- Single view
- Saved List button to create a custom list
- All Views from the web property
- All Views from the logged in GA account (multiple web properties)
If you choose “All”, then you can create a Saved List of Views to “not include” from the All list.
The views have to be from the same Google Login but you can choose any segment, up to seven dimensions, or ten metrics that are available. You could, for example, choose up to ten goal metrics and segment them by a dimension such as country. NEXT Analytics has a built in engine that lets you sort, filter, and combine the rows in the report any way that you might want.
If you’ve chosen multiple views, it might be because you want to see goals from different groups, all in the same report. Or, perhaps you want to see eCommerce metrics for each View. NEXT Analytics also allows you to combine the metrics from multiple views, to get a sum or average, for example.
After your analysis is complete, you can easily distribute dashboards that show multiple Google Analytics Views by using the following services (with the click of a single button).
- Google Spreadsheet; or
- Google Data Studio; or
- Microsoft Excel; or
- Microsoft PowerBI
- Store in a database for BI tools access
The ability to analyze multiple Google Analytics Views at once is significant added value over using the basic Google Analytics capabilities. NEXT Analytics is easily downloaded and is available as a free version, as well as a PRO version which has quotas removed and extra power-features enabled.
