Custom report on specific data

Hello,

 

I've been tossed headfirst into google analytics without a paddle.  I'm currently attempting to create a custom report that only includes a few specific campaigns.  Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thank you!

Well - firstly, good luck; you've got an exciting and challenging assignment. I hope the expectations of your colleagues are appropriate. 

 

What do you want to report? Sessions from these campaigns, conversions, user behaviour?

 

You can create a custom report for your campaigns by using a filter based on the campaign name, for example. Use the customisation tab and then experiment with the filter tab you'll see there. You can filter on a source, medium or campaign name - or a combination of these. However, this report format is limited to only reporting the dimensions and metrics you select. 

 

You should also use advanced segments - again use source, medium or campaign to create a segment of sessions which have come from your campaign.
