Hello,

I am creating a report, in which i have to show the number of sessions, users and registrations that have occurred today in a live feed. I see that the ga dashboard is updated only till 7 am in the morning although its 10:41 am right now. Can I know after what time interval does the analytics server is updated? I am using core analytics api to fetch the data as of now, if any other api suits my requirements do suggest.

Hi Mansi,

Data freshness usually depends on the volume of your data - from minutes with small websites two hours with large websites. You may consider real-time reporting instead. There is also a real-time API [1].
