Try the following:
#1 - Try testing the same report with different dates & report detail level. If it still isn't working try the suggestions below. If it does work with other dates Universal Analytics may still be processing your data (it looks like you hit a massive spike in traffic during the time peroid listed) and it may take some time to process.
#2 - Try rebuilding your custom report
#3 - Clear cookies & cache
#4 - Log out and then back into GA

Hey @Jermaine B,

Data request failure error occurs as a result of manipulating large amount of data within google analytics, to solve these issues try applying the following

- When comparing data, try using shorter date-range

- Reduce the number of segments applied on data, especially advanced segments to reduce time required to generate reports

- Change sample size of data so that it loads data more quickly

- Minimize the number of filters applied to different reports and dashboard so that data manipulation time can be reduced and it takes less time to load.

Fixing above issues will surely help reduce the time google analytics takes to load data and help avoid error in future.


If this solved the issue let me know by giving a star Smiley Happy
