2) Three things to remember about Views

https://www.practicalecommerce.com/Google-Analytics-Using-Views-and-Filters-to-Understand-Visitors

  • Views are not retroactive
  • Always keep the raw data (keep original intact)
  • Test before implementing - create a view and test your filters on it to make sure it works.

3) For SaaS projects - exclude dev's from localhost

If you go to:

a) Behavior > Site Content > All Pages b) Now apply a secondary dimension of 'Hostname" from Behavior

If you see 'localhost' than your want to remove this data.

c) Create a new filter > exclude > traffic to the hostname > localhost.

NOTE: Filter effects are permanent, meaning once a filter is applied that data is GONE! so make sure not to apply to 'All Website Data' or only apply to it after you have tested it on another.
