Google Analytics Dashboards Limitations

google analytics dashboad

In my last few articles, I have explained about basics of Google Analytics(GA) which helps anyone to setup GA account for their Android app and additionally which helps to do segmentations or custom reports . Now let me explain limitations of the Google Analytics dashboards as per their support document.

Google Analytics Dashboards have the following limitations and constraints –

  • Each Analytics view can contain up to 20 private Dashboards per user.
  • Each Analytics account can contain up to 50 shared Dashboards per view.
  • Each Dashboard can contain up to 12 widgets.
  • You must have Edit permission to share Dashboards and data with the current view. Users with Read permission can still share Dashboard templates via a link or in the Solutions Gallery.

There are some limits in using linked reports –

  • When linking a report to a Dashboard, you can only embed the Data view of that report. If you try to add a report that uses another view of the table (e.g., Percentage, Performance, Comparison or Pivot), you will see a warning icon. Mouse over the icon to see the warning message. You can still add the report, but it will display only the Data view.
  • Linked reports can’t have metric filters or secondary dimensions. If you try to add a report with a metric filter or secondary dimension, you will see a warning icon. Mouse over the icon to see the warning message. You can still add the report, but it will not include the filter or secondary dimension.
  • Linked reports display only the first two metric columns from your reports. If your report contains more than two metrics, additional metrics will not be displayed in the Dashboard.

I hope this will be useful for people using Google Analytics, so do not forget to share it with your friends and colleagues.

Happy coding!!!
