Hi, I want to ask you for opinion and advice.

 

I have several GA properties and I want to automate them with defined KPIs and create over 30+ dashboards per property.

 

I did research until now and I have a few options I'm thinking about.

-Google Sheets (with GA add-on) /free

-Microsoft Power BI / free

-BlockSpring tool connecting Excel /not free

 

Can you share please your best practices for this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hey Dusan, 

 

Can you explain what your main objective is with creating all of these dashboards? Is it for your clients to see progress/results? Is it for you and/or your team to monitor performance?

Hey Dusan, 

 

GoogleSheets is a great way to view multiple dashboards. Additionally with a little coding you can case Analytic's API's to embed reports/dashboards and more!

Let me know if this is what you were thinking.
