GA UI doesn't match GA Academy Video

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I am currently going through the Academy material and have noticed that in the video content/lessons in GA Academy, the UI is different than the current UI in a browser. Ex. videos describe how to use the "Email, Export, Add to Dashboard and Shortcut" Tabs that are no longer there. I know, for example, there is now Customization>Dashboard and I read on one thread that Data Studio is the benchmark now.

 

Is there any news as to when the GA Academy content will but updated? Are there more up to date learning resources that match the current UI that would help me prepare for the cert exams?

 

Many thanks in advance for your time and help.

I experienced the same discrepancies. For example I cannot seem to find how to create a shortcut.

I'm running into the same issue. Specifically how to save reports directly to a dashboard when the "Add to Dashboard" does not seem to be an option.

 

Has anyone helped you find a solution?

 

Thank you!

I am also having the same issue. By section 2 of the Google Analytics Acedemy for Beginners, the formatting is obviously different than the videos. Google, can you help us out? Why do the videos not match the current version of the program?
