Google Analytics introduces a Change History log

Great news, my buddy Tim Bakker told me Google introduced a new Change History feature. And when you login to your analytics account you will see this message:

changehistory

With this new feature you will be able to see which account changed what to your account. This includes:

  • Accounts: created, deleted
  • Users: added, deleted, changed
  • Goals: created, deleted, changed
  • Filters: created, deleted, changed

In one word: awesome. From now on you can see if the requested goal changes are processed by your Web Analytics consultant. Or who applied a filter that blocked all data from a specific profile.

The log will be on account level, and you will find this new feature here:

historylogs

It isn't clear when this new feature will be available to everyone, but as always, it should be there in a few weeks.

Wanted extra feature

A lot of my clients are using 1 single email address to log on to their accounts. The main reason for that is that they all see the same profiles, dashboards, custom reports and advanced segments. This interferes with the idea of the new Change Log, perhaps Google should also introduce an option for Advanced Segments and Custom Reports to share them on account level for all users. Then everybody can use its own login.
