Hello Experts,

I have come up a reporting option in property label in GA below:

 

User Analysis:Enable Users Metric in Reporting

 

 

It is a new option in GA what that means if i toggle this option on in my analytics admin section?

 

Can any body explain this.

There is an help section of this but need a clear vision.

 

Thanks

It is basically a toggle to use the latest GA user calculation which will help in more accuracy of user count.

Hi Soumik,

 

I'm actually in the same case as you - since you did activated the "Users Metrics in Reporting", what did it changed for you? Can we still see the Sessions count in the reports?

 

Thanks!

Hi!

 

After enabling the option we saw a big difference in the New and Retunring User number between the old and the new way of user counting. 

 

Did anybody experience the same thing and is it certain that the new way is more accurate than the old one?

 

Best
