You can manage the following components:

  • Filters: Exclude parts of your data to focus on common dimension items
  • Calculated metrics: Use metrics and formulas as new components for use in reporting
  • Date ranges: Customize and refine the date ranges Analysis Workspace offers
  • Projects: Organize and maintain your projects in Analysis Workspace

Analysis Workspace components

Components in Analysis Workspace consist of metrics, dimensions, segments, and time granularities that you can drag-and-drop onto a project. Custom components that you create are added to these panels, such as custom date ranges.

To access the Components panel, click the Components icon in the left rail. You can switch among Panels (Blank panel, Freeform panel, Quick Insights, or Attribution IQ panel), Visualizations, and Components using the left-rail icons or by using hotkeys.

See Create a project for information about using Components in a project.
