Learn to build a custom dashboard for easy access to key metrics. Design a dashboard based on your most critical business goals, with up to 12 visual data displays (tables, line graphs, bar graphs, pie charts, etc.).
Google has recently released a new version of analytics called G4. It’s recommended to run both new and legacy versions on your website concurrently. However, this workshop remains focused on the legacy version, Universal Analytics.
This workshop will not cover Google Analytics account setup and installation, as the installation procedure varies depending on your website platform. Please seek out a YouTube video tutorial for your specific website platform or consult your webmaster for installation support. It is expected you will have your GA account setup and installed prior to the workshop. No further experience required.
