Copy a report
You can duplicate any report to which you have access, unless the owner has specifically disabled this in the sharing options.In this article:
How copying a report works
When you copy a report, the copy inherits the following from the original:
- date range controls
- filter controls
- data and style settings (e.g. colors, fonts, decimal precision, etc.)
- text, shapes, and images
- Google Analytics segments
Copying a report does not create copies of its data sources. When you copy a report, you must select which data source(s) to use for the copy. If you have at least view access to the original data sources, you can use those; otherwise, you must select new data sources to use.
To copy a report
- View the report.
- In the upper right, click
- Select the data source(s) to use in the copy.
The Create new report dialog (shown below) lists the original data sources currently added to the template on the left. On the right, you can choose the data sources to use in your copied report. If the original data source has been shared with you, you can use that one. Or you can select one of your own data sources, or even create a new one at this time.
- Click CREATE REPORT.
Copy a report with "unknown" data sources
When you copy a report that uses a data source that has not been shared with you, you must select a different data source to use. These non-shared data sources appear as "Unknown" in the data source selection dialog.
