Data source

Configuring a data source in the report settings panel is no different than adding a data source to any other component. That data source will be the default until you add a different one to any other component in the report.

Report-level data sources are a legacy feature that remains as a convenience for supporting older reports.

Date Range Dimension

Configuring a date range dimension in the report settings panel sets it as the default for the entire report. You can override this by setting a different date range dimension for a selected component.

Learn more about changing the default date range.

Report filter

Configuring a filter in the report settings panel sets it as the default for the entire report. All components that share the same (or similar) data source are affected by the filter. You can override this by turning off filter inheritance for a selected component.

Learn more about filters.

Cache Control

This setting enables or disables the prefetch cache.

Learn more about the cache.

Google Analytics measurement ID

You can measure traffic to a report by entering a Google Analytics measurement ID. To learn how to find your Measurement ID, visit the Google Analytics Help Center.

Learn more about measuring report usage with Google Analytics.

If the report is copied, the measurement ID does NOT get copied to the new report. This is to protect the privacy of the Google Analytics account owner.
