What is a custom report?
A Custom Report is a report that you create. You pick the dimensions (City and Browser, for example) and metrics (Sessions, Pageviews, and Bounce Rate, for example) and decide how they should be displayed. You must specify at least one dimension and one metric. Learn about dimensions and metrics.

What are the chief benefits of a custom report?
Save Time with Automation. Time-efficiency is probably one of the most important benefits of custom reporting/dashboards. Instead of gathering data, preparing and crunching the numbers in Excel, and then having to create the report, for example, in PowerPoint, you could use a tool that does all of that for you.
What scopes can custom metrics have?
There are four levels of scope: product, hit, session, and user: Product – value is applied to the product for which it has been set (Enhanced Ecommerce only). Hit – value is applied to the single hit for which it has been set. Session – value is applied to all hits in a single session.
Click on the ‘Share in Solutions Gallery’ menu item, if you want to share your dashboard with the general public in the Google Analytics Solutions Gallery. When you do that, you are only sharing the dashboard configuration. You are not sharing your traffic data.
Export and share reports
- Open the report you’d like to export. Analytics exports the report as it is currently displayed on your screen, so make sure that you’ve applied your desired date range and report settings.
- Click Export (across from the report title).
- Select one of the export formats: CSV. TSV. TSV for Excel.
The Share > Share template link option generates a URL you can copy and send to other users, embed in a document or host on a website. When you share a Dashboard via a template, you share only the settings for the Dashboard–you do not share any data.
