I setup a test in Analytics under Acquisition, Campaigns and saved it as Fall2016. I cannot find any way to remove or delete it and all references to delete it in searching take me back to Ad-Words. this was not created in Ad-Words, it was created under Analytics.

Hi Charles,


Unfortunately, you cannot remove historical data if it's already there. 


If you just created a new view in Google Analytics (you haven't gathered a lot of information yet), you can delete this view and create a new one. That's one possible way how to remove this data. If you've already gathered a lot of valuable information to this view, you shouldn't delete it. Unfortunately, you cannot just remove a specific campaign.


That's how you can create a new view:

That's how you can delete an existing view:

Keep in mind, after 35 days in the trash can, an entity is permanently deleted.


Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.
