I cannot interact with the demo account in analytics

Hi,

I'm working my way through the beginners course, but after accessing the Google Merchandise Store demo account via my analytics account I can't seem to interact with it at all.

 

I'm currently at module 1.4, where I'm supposed to change the name of the unfiltered view All Website Data (via admin --> view settings) to Raw data. I don't see a view called All Website Data, but I do have 3 views called Master View, Test View and Raw Data View. However, when I select one of these and go to view settings, as instructed, I cannot rename them or change anything else about them.

 

Does anyone know what the problem might be here?

Hi :-)

Its a demo account to which ppl have limited access.
This allows you to apply report filters only.. not make edits to views or filters

You also need to create your own analytics account to which you have full access in order to complete some of the exercises that require you to be able to make edits/modifications to Views, View filters and so on
