Dashboards are a great tool in Google Analytics, but what are the best uses for a Dashboard?
In most cases, dashboards are ideal to build basic reports that you would like to see on an on-going basis. Here are three reasons why dashboards are a great feature to utilize in Google Analytics:
When someone visits your site or completes an action that is known as a conversion. In Google Analytics a conversion is typically credited to the last action that took place.
For example when someone does a Search for your company, or another website Refers to your website, or an Ad was clicked on, those last interactions get the credit for the conversion.
When creating a dashboard within Google Analytics you have the option of adding widgets and graphs to visualize your data. Although dashboards in Google Analytics can be very helpful, they don’t always render with as much excitement as in Google Data Studio.
