Set date ranges in automated, custom reports

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I would like to schedule an automatic email to send out a monthly custom performance report. 

 

  1. Is there a way to pre-set the date range so the report ONLY shows results for the previous month? 
  2. Is there a way to automatically include comparison results for the same month last year? 

For example, the report sent out in April 2015 would only should results from March 2015 plus comparison data from March 2014.

I am able to adjust the date range and set up comparisons when I manually run the report, but I'd really like automate the entire process if possible.

Hi Jessica,

you get the data for the previous month if you schedule the report monthly at first day of month.

Date comparisons are not possible in Analytics scheduling to my knowledge.
