Hi Google S,
if you go to admin area, and you select history at account level you can see all the different actions done on your GA.
To see History menu you need to have all user rights

thank you,
the problem is i don't see anything in my change history other than "Advertising Features were enabled for property" a year ago.
Is this an access thing? because i currently have access to make changes and create filters.

This is weird, if you do with your user It has to be there, the only explanation that it was done before you get access, but it sounds weird too

Hi Google S,

another way would be to search for data in your reports that has been filtered out since the filter was established. The last time the data appeared in your report is about the date the filter were established. Could be tedious, however, if you've got a lot of filters ...
