Hi Jasmeet,

As we don't know how filter has been set up so it is not possible to say what's wrong in current set up but I'm sharing a latest video on this @ https://measureschool.com/video/google-analytics-referral-spam-tutorial-2017/

 

*You are using a filtered view which may cause your ad-hoc channel grouping data to be inaccurate" - It means you are getting some filtered data and excluding the data sources which you do not want to view. So it is perfectly fine if you see the message after applying any filter.

 

Thanks

I assume real time audience showing for unfiltered view if that is the case can you share the screenshots of filter set up? 

 

Thanks
