I accidently setup a filter incorrectly and it wiped out the traffic in my view for the last two days.  I can see the traffic in other views, but I have an api pull that is dependent on this.  Does anyone know if there Is any way to fix this?

Hi,

 

Unfortunately there is no way to restore missing data in a view because filters permanently alter data. It's a best practice to always have an unfiltered view and to apply a filter to a test view first to see if it works as expected.

Sorry I couldn't help.

2 days ago, Under admin. set up, I checked the box that says "filter out known Bots"

immediately my traffic went to zero

Typically I was getting 500+ hits/ month even with extensive filtering for Russians etc. on my own

I removed the check mark for "filter out known Bots" but my traffic remains at zero.

Can you help me with this issue.

 

Can you advise how to correct this?
