Hi Anjali,

 

As far as I remember, it's not possible to hide the "not set" data inside Google Analytics. Reason being it's an important part of this web analytics platform and it's functionality. Here are more details: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2820717?hl=en

 

For further better insights, you can re-post this question over Google Analytics forum:- https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/analytics

Hello Anjali,

it is an old request, but a solution is still needed. On a dashboard you can set the filter "dont show [Dimension] containing 'not set''"

@Pakaj
The not set data is not allways needed.
E.G.: you wanna show the top content groups in a dashboard. 'Not set' shows me the traffic where no CG is defined. I know that not every page is in, or that all pages I want to be in are in. So for me there is no need for not set. Other people might be confused to see the 'not set'. So it is better to hide this in reports.
