Whenever you make a change to the analytics, such as adding a filter or changing the date, the URL in your browser is updated. This is useful in two ways.
First, it means you can refresh the page without losing your edits.
More importantly, it means you can copy the current URL to save your customizations and reload them in the future.
And we’ve made things even easier with the addition of the Copy Dashboard URL button in the toolbar.
You can click this button to get a URL for the current menu and its settings.
For example, let’s say you want to check your site’s search traffic. You would visit the Referrers dashboard, add a filter that sets the Referrer type to Search, and then copy the URL. Then you can revisit that URL whenever you want to see your search traffic without having to edit the filters again.
You can use these URLs to build your own list of reports anywhere you want – Apple Notes, Evernote, Notion – wherever you like to work.
In the future, we’d like to expand this feature so that your saved reports are accessible through links within your analytics dashboard, but for now, this gives you a quick way to revisit your favorite reports.
