How to Automate & Schedule Google Analytics Reports

automated reports google analytics

Google Analytics helps you track your SEO and website analytics data. Still, it's a complicated tool with so many metrics and KPIs available that creating an easy-to-understand Google Analytics report can be difficult.  

Whether you use PowerPoint presentations, Google Sheets, or Excel reports to showcase your Google Analytics data, you must know there is a better way! You can automate and schedule your Google Analytics reports with a Google Analytics reporting tool (like DashThis).


What are Google Analytics Automated Reports?


Google Analytics Automated Reports is a feature within Google Analytics that allows users to schedule and automatically generate reports in real-time. Instead of manually pulling data and creating reports each time, users can set up automated reports to receive the latest data at predefined intervals.


The time-saving Google Analytics reporting solution


Let's be real; it's quite time-consuming to copy-paste data from all your digital marketing platforms, including Google Analytics, into a manual report. And if you have multiple Google Analytics accounts you need to create reports for, it can take hours of hard work every month.


This is why you need automated reports to help you save all that time and use them on your marketing strategies instead. 


How do automated reports work?


Unlike manual reports, automated reports enable you to create your report only once. Then it is automatically updated with new data every single day and can even be emailed automatically every day, week, month, or year to your clients or boss. To have that kind of report, you need an automated reporting tool.


An automated reporting tool will gather all your data and present it clearly in a marketing report. You can use it for your Google Analytics data and your Adwords, social media, e-commerce, search engine data, and any marketing effort you are currently working on. 


You choose the KPIs that matter most to your own strategies (from goal completions to landing page performance, pageviews, conversion rate, or bounce rate) and can easily modify the report configuration to be custom for your data visualization needs.  


You can add all your data sources from all your marketing tools into the same report or use multiple reports for each strategy. You can even add your own proprietary data with CSV files


Here's what your automated reports could look like:

Better than a plain Excel spreadsheet or Google Sheets, right? 


Custom reports can be branded with white-label options for an even more impressive look. 



And the best part is that you don't have to create new reports every month; you create reports once and never even have to touch them again. They are automatically updated with all your KPIs data every single day.
