I Don't Have a Traffic Source Menu Option

Hello,

I am trying to see the traffic sources to my web site.  However, I do not have the menu option on the left navigation bar to be able to view that.  How do I get to view where my traffic is coming from?  I cannot find it in Google Analytics.  How do I enable that menu option?

 

Thanks,


BJ

If you are not seeing the option try reopening / resizing you browser.

Hi, I have scrolled through the entire menu, and opened it several times to try it.  I literally do not have that option.  I've googled how to find it and have learned that it should just be there.  It is not.


Thanks,


BJ

BJ are you saying that Acquisition --> All Traffic --> Channels does not appear as an option, if so does any of the path show for you.

OK, so THAT is the piece I was missing, Brian. Thank you. When I googled
it, the instructions gave me the impression that the menu option for
traffic sources would be just that, words that said "traffic sources." I
thought I was losing my mind. Thank you.
