Why the result between ga report and add-on/api is different?

Dear all,

 

I got a problem to get the tracking onApp. All setting are same, from 2015-11-21 to 2015-11-22, on same profile id, but my add-on and api are same, just different from the ga report. Can anyone know why? or if I got any setting wrong? Thanks


GA report shows the screenview of this content is 1400

Add-on report, I have same setting, see it the following img, but the report shows only 132

Hi,

there is an issue with the setup where you use 2 diferrent dimensions. In GA you use ga:screenName and in your sheets (via API) you use ga:landingScreenName - try to make a query with the same dimension (ga:screenName) to see if all checks out.

Kind regards,

Zorin!
Thank you so much! You are right that I got wrong dimension! While the result shows the title of my page, I didn't notice it is from landingpage rather than from its page name.
