Google Analytics Pie Chart / List Widget



The Google Analytics Pie / List widget is a colorful graphic presentation of key metrics from the website's Google Analytics account, including integration with AdWords campaigns. Data can be filtered by a variety of traffic metrics, dimensions, conversions, segments and events.

This widget can be added to White Label Client Dashboards and PDF Reports. In marketing dashboards you can set it to display at half or full page width. You can view a marketing dashboard sample that contains this and additional widgets (password is demo).

Important! To view this report, Google Analytics must be configured correctly (please refer to our Google Analytics documentation).

Dates


  • Select Report Date range from the Report Options calendar tool or select a Custom Date Range in the top right toolbar
  • Optional: select the Compare to Past option and one of the time period options:

    If "Previous Period" is elected and the report date range is set to a 31-day month (e.g., July), and the previous month has only 30 days (e.g., June), then the report will include the last day of the month prior to that (e.g., May 31). This is the way the Google calculates the dates in their reports.

    We also offer a "Calendar Month(s)" option that compares each full calendar month in the report date range to the previous month(s). For example, if you select a report period of April 1 - May 31 (i.e. 61 days), the previous Calendar Months compared will be February 1 - March 31 (59 days), even though the total number of days in the 2 periods are not the same. As opposed to the "Previous Period" setting, resulting in a comparison period of January 30 - March 31 to match the 61 days of April 1 - May 31.

    The "Same Time Last Year" setting matches exact dates (e.g., January 1, 2018 - June 30, 2018 compared to January 1, 2017 - June 30, 2017).

If the report is scheduled to be sent on the 1st day of every month, the following example would be invalid:
  • last day of this month (because it's only the 1st day of the month the report is being sent)
