Analytics View for Particular Page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I need to give our partner companies access to view analytics for their individually assigned pages. I assume that the best way to do this is to create a custom view, create a filter so that only their page appears, and then invite them to "Read and Analyze" that view.

 

For some reason, whenever I try this, the view displays no data. No sessions at all, even though I can see plenty of activity when I view "All Website Data" and look at that particular page. This is true even when I remove the filter, and confirm that the "Website's URL" under View Settings is the same. What am I missing?

Hi Finn :-)
New or copied Views are not retroactive. They do not populate with historic data, they will only collect data going forward from the time they are created.
Usually a new View will start to display report data within 48hrs.

Thanks for your answer! I'm rather bummed that's the case, though. I'd really like to show our partner companies all of their historic data. Maybe I'll see if I can at least export the historic data and send it to them in emails.
