HOW TO CREATE THE CUSTOM REPORT

  • In CUSTOMISATION > Custom Reports click New Custom Report

HOW TO FILTER YOUR REPORT FURTHER

  • You may want to filter the report further to just show data for just one edition. This can be done on the fly by setting a specific Pugpig Edition Name in the advanced section of your report screen.

  • Alternatively, you can edit your original report and add the filter in the custom report form Filters section either in your existing report tab or in a new one.

Any of these filter choices are valid so pick what makes the most sense for your own reporting needs! If you think you will want to return to the report in order to continue monitoring this metric for certain editions it might make sense to create multiple tabs in your Custom Report each with a different edition name filter set.

A NOTE ON GOOGLE ANALYTICS METRIC DEFINITIONS
