Since we already know what imperfections characterize the channel grouping provided by Google, let’s think about how to prepare a grouping that will present data in reports more precisely. – where to start? We can create our grouping in three different ways, of which only two are recommended. Editing the default channel grouping performed at the view level: The biggest downside of this solution is the inability to work backwards, so after changing the channel settings, we will not see changes in historical data. Only sessions recorded by Google Analytics after editing the grouping will be assigned to the updated channel definitions. Editing is not a recommended method of changing channel groupings, we always leave it unchanged.
Creating a custom channel grouping
The user level: If we want to prepare channels in this way, we must take into account that they will be available only to the user who created them, so it is a good solution if we want to leave the grouping only for our own use. However, if we wanted to make Algeria Business Email List the prepared grouping available to other users, it can be done in two ways. The first option is “Promote”. This option creates a view-level copy, allowing you to: • Users with Read and Analyze (or higher) permissions at the Data View level to view and use this channel group. • Users with Edit permissions at the Data View level to edit the configuration in Channel Settings > Channel Group.
The second option is to use
Share” option, thanks to which we will share the link to the template with another user. The limit of channel groupings created by one user is 100.

It can be used by all users who have access to a Bab Directory given view in Google Analytics. The limit of channel groupings created per view is 50. The last two presented possibilities of preparing custom grouping of channels are recommended because: • immediately after their creation. We can use them in reports • they work on historical data. Therefore they apply retroactively and classify data using new channel definitions present data in a new way without changes. In the data itself only their presentation changes.
