The New Google Analytics Interface
Seriously, am I the only one that thinks this interface just blows? I had to go to the help file just to figure out how to get rid of a property that I no longer want to track. It’s honestly given me a headache. Perhaps the eggheads up at Google think this is just the sh*t, but for someone that just needs quick reliable information without having to use a cheat sheet every time I want to do something, this is NOT the sh*t.
So for my own sanity, since 2 minutes later, I couldn’t actually remember how I managed to delete that stupid profile, here are the instructions (read “cheat sheet”) for actually using the “new and improved” interface to delete a property. Seriously when things work well, why did they feel the need to screw with it? This interface honestly gives me nothing but headaches. I guess I should spend a day with a notebook and nothing else to do and jot down everything that I run across for later reference. I don’t delete many profiles, but for crying out loud, simple usability indicators MIGHT just show this to be sort of a high level function. Anyone else agree?
Deleting a Google Analytics Property/Profile
- Go to the account you want to delete
- Click on the “Admin” button on the top right
- Go to the main page next to +New Profile
- “Profile Settings”
- Way down bottom right – “Delete this profile”
Seriously, should this NOT be something at the top of the food chain here?
