New GA4 is totally useless. I have no idea how to create dashboards, set up scheduled reports and so on. Because there is no documentation for GA4.

I can easily manage old properties, because the UI hasn't changed, but I have troubles with new properties. 
Do I have any chance to use the good old way? Or you can provide FULL documentation to work with GA4?

You cant change a property once it has been created.. create a new property and when you get to the above page.. select the UA option before saving the Property

As per my above post
Hi, when you create the Property (not after you first create and save the property as a GA4 property)

unfortunately analytics now defaults to creating a GA4 Property.
To create a web property (now known as a Universal Property), with a UA-XXXX-X format tracking id.. 

Create a new property, then on the Property setup page, click on Show advanced options and toggle on the option for a UA property

it gives you the option of creating both property types or just a Universal Analytics property only.

Select to create just a universal property.






If you have accidently created and do not want a GA4 Property, select the GA4 Property from the drop Property column drop down, then select it's Property Settings page and at the upper right, click the Send to Trash option to delete it.

I am likewise struggling with the new interface.  Is there a way to drill down to Ad Content (to view the utm_content parameter) as there is in the Universal Analytics interface?  I can't find it in GA4 and that data is crucial for the campaign I'm running.

I couldn't find a default dimension of Ad Content, but did just feel it was worthwhile to mention that page path in GA4 contains all parameters. I was able to get the Ad Content data by exporting the page paths filtered to the campaign I was looking for, and could see utm_content in that export.

Hope that helps.

Yeah GA4 is crap. It's not tracking properly... I may be doing it wrong but I do not think it is very stable or that there is enough information on how to set it up properly with events and adwords.

The new Google Analytics is useless. I can't find active pages very easily unlike before.
