Delete a day of data or retroactive apply filter

Hello,

I will assume I put this in the wrong forum because that is my luck, but it seemed like it was the best.

I took over our company website and started tracking site traffic.  We don't get a lot of traffic so specific data is important to me.  I currently started working on the site from home and forgot to apply a filter to block my IP from getting tracked.  I have one for work but spaced my home.  As a result, I have a lot of traffic hitting on a specific day and it is skewing my averages.  I would like to know if I can remove a day from my records or retroactively apply a filter that removes my home PC from tracking data.

Or another option, can I remove a specific day from my timeline history and do date ranges that do not include that day?

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

Unfortunately there is no way to alter historical data in Google Analytics. Filters are applied to incoming hits and they only apply to data gathered after the filter is applied (they require up to 24 hours before they are applied to your data). Sorry I can't be of more help.
