No need to delete anything. As you send more UTM data to Analytics, it will gather and add on to what you already have. You want to tag each of your efforts individually so you can separate and analyze the data.

Hi @Haroon M,

 

You can use the URL Builder Tool to create UTM Parameters to append to your URL for each source.  These parameters will carry over into Analytics and you'll be able to view reports based on the parameters you use.  

 

This article also covers using UTM Parameters and may help you decide on how to tag your URLs.

Hope this helps!

Test it out - create a URL with the correct parameters you'd like - open up your Real Time report in Analytics and then visit that tagged URL you created. That will show you exactly what will occur.

Try from a source outside of the networks etc...that are being excluded. A smartphone on a carrier network would not likely be excluded.
