I created custom reports and my client cannot view them when he clicks on the customization tab. What can I do so that he can view them?

Hi Nathan :-)

You need to Share the Custom Report with him.


Access, manage, and share Custom Reports
To access your Custom Reports, select the Customization tab at the top of any page in Analytics

In the left navigation, select Overview to see a table listing of all of your Custom Reports. You can create Categories to organize reports into different groups.


Use the Actions dropdown menu to Edit, Copy, Delete, and Share individual reports.
When you share a Custom Report, only the configuration information is shared.
Your data remains private.

Click a report name inside the table to see that specific report. You can also select reports from the left navigation. When using a report, you can click Edit (top left, below the report title) to make changes to the report.

  2. Select the Admin tab and navigate to the view from which you wish to share assets.
