Creating, saving and exporting user reports

So, you've generated a report on channels or traffic, configured the grouping, specified dates, added filters, and selected the necessary metrics. Now, this report solves a specific business task. There is one "but". However, once you close the report, all settings reset. If later you want to get the same data, you'll have to configure the report from scratch.

Fortunately, a report on channels and a report on traffic are user reports. What does this mean? Firstly, you build such a report by choosing only the necessary parameters and indicators. Secondly, there is a possibility of saving. A saved report can be opened at any time.

Settings that are saved include:

  • Channel;

  • Period;

  • Grouping and details (fields for "Group by" and "In which show");

  • Applied filters;

  • Visualization of metrics on graphs;

  • Display of the data table.

This article details how to create and save a user-generated report on channels or traffic and how to export the obtained data.
