How to set up email reports in the new Google Analytics
The new Google analytics email reports are a little more difficult to set up than the old analytics system, but pretty straight forward if you know what you’re doing. Here is a step by step tutorial on how to set up your weekly or monthly email reports.
First, visit your Google Analytics dashboard and click the Email tab under Standard reporting. This will start your base email report with the dashboard information.
Add your email where you want to recieve the analytics report, select the format you would like the report and select the schedule. I have a PDF sent monthly shown, but you can choose a CSV file weekly if you would like. There are many options to fit your taste.
This will only add the dashboard report, so you will most likely want more information emailed to you. Use the navigation on the left of Analytics to go the the report you would like to add to the scheduled email. For example, go to the “Traffic Sources” and click overview. You’ll see the email tab at the top of the page. Click the email tab and when the window pops up similar to before, you’ll now see an “Add to existing email” link at the bottom right. Click the link to add to the base email you just set up.
Now select the existing email to add this report to the existing email. Keep repeating the above step and adding needed reports to the existing email to compile all your reports into one weekly email or one monthly email. You may also have different schedules with different reports emailed.
Google has stated they will be canceling the old reports soon. Currently there is no way to turn off the old reports in Google Analytics. The trick to turning off old Analytics reports we blogged about in the past no longer works.
