Hi All = please can we have the ability to restrict a data control to : 

- a single property

- a handful of views 

 

Users are complaining about needing to scroll through long lists to find their property they want. ( and are makig mistakes with reporting)

Hi Grant

 

Your users are seeing the same list of views they'd see in Google Analytics, right? (They should definitely not be seeing more!)

 

You can bookmark the report URL after selecting the desired view. 

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Rick 

Yes - privacy is good.  We can only see our own websites. It doesn't solve our use case though.

 

We are using it with a large multi-national company, with multiple domains and multiple countries.

The Dashboards that we built are bespoke to one website so won't apply to other properties.  The customer wants to be able to easily switch between countries during meetings - and it takes a long time to keep switching (currently they have had to build a large folder which a lot of bookmarked pages which is quite painful to create - especially over multiple countries.  We are potentialy going to add a custom field to the CMS to create a list of bookmarks. 

 

It could be solved really simply by having control to restrict the data control to one property/ collection of views.
