Redundant Views

I recently created the Raw/Test/Master views on my Analytics property. I keep getting notified that I have redundant views. Am I doing something wrong—or is that common between the Text/Master similarities.

 

For reference, my site (mirrormatter.agency) is very small.

Hi,

 

It's because your views are similar or the same. It's a good practice to delete redundant views in order to keep your data clean and to avoid confusion. Keeping them for later use will not do any harm, you can ignore the notification. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Arnold. At what point does it become useful to use a Test View? I ask because the below link recommends it.

Hi,

 

A test view is useful for testing changes like adding new filters before you apply them to your main view.
