Creating a Week by Week Report of Web Page Sessions

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello I'm creating an Excel file over my University's web page sessions over a week by week basis from the last couple years.  Is there a way I can make a report through Analytics that gathers all these numbers for me and puts them in one place, or do I have to make a single week's report and record each one separately? Doing this 104 times seems rather repetitive.

 

Thanks,

Gavin

There is a 'week index' dimension you can use. The index is always '0000' for the first week in your date range, so you'll have to label the ranges yourself, but at least you can get them at once

There is also a Week of Year dimension that could be used in a custom report. It gives you a year-week combination number that might provide more context (e.g. 201601, 201602, ...)

but is there a way to make the Y-axis something like, "6/27 - 7/1" and "7/4 - 7/8"?

Not as a straight-forward custom report -- it would require some post-report processing.
