Email Scheduling & PDF Reports Added To New Google Analytics

 

Google Analytics LogoOne of the main features analytics junkies have been waiting for in the new Google Analytics interface was the ability to schedule out PDF formatted analytics reports. That feature seems to have been quietly added recently.

A Google Analytics Help thread has an update from one Analytics user saying, "Good news!!!! Pdf and email functions are now available. I saw them this morning. How crazy of them to leave them out for so long."

This is a feature that has been promised since the new interface was launched months ago. Google kept saying it will be available in weeks, but nothing showed up. It is now there. Here is a screen shot from my analytics account:

Most relied on the old interface to send out scheduled emails and now they can remove them from the old interface and add them to the new interface.

We noticed that it literally only exports what is on screen. The PDF export of old use to do a full 8 page odd dashboard export. We covered it here -  http://www.adtrak.co.uk/blog/pdf-export-returns-to-analytics/

I just tried both email and pdf export option in my analytics. It was great to have these features now.

At last the one thing that we were all crying out for! The new interface is slick but I often found myself going back to the old interface to run off PDF reports for clients.

this new version is awful.  It's a screen shot of what ever you're currently looking at.  It's ugly as hell and where's the MAP overlay? ugh. come on google do a little better... buy the company that owns the library you were using! ugh.

Did you happen to notice that there's no real function to DELETE scheduled emails or edit the setting at all?  What if I want to remove email address that they get sent to.  It just keeps getting better and better.
