Instant reporting

Instant reporting allows you to see data immediately, instead of waiting for a report to run and then downloading the file for offline viewing. Instant reporting is great for quick performance checks, ad-hoc reports, and routine analysis of common dimensions and metrics. Instant reports can be single use or saved for later, and also made into visualizations like bar and pie charts.
