Re-order tabs and Metric Groups in Custom Reports

Hi, 

 

When I'm editing a Custom Report, how can I re-order the tabs in the Report without deleting them and re-creating them from scratch?

Similarly, how can I rearrange the Metric Groups?

Hi Corey,

I'm not sure if re-ordering tabs is included in the 'shortcut' feature - you may try that.

I found a workaround for this. Use the "duplicate this tab" button. Duplicated tabs will be added to the rightmost tab location.

 

Duplicate and delete tabs until you have the tab order you want.

Good idea. Although it doesn't work in my case (as I had 5 tabs on that report), it's a great general solution that works in most cases.
