How User Explorer Reporting works
Google analytics offer new sets of reporting that allows the user to identify each individual interactions that are done on their website with specific time and date.User Explorer also inherits the existing analytics data such as device category, Acquisition Channel, Acquisition Date, Sessions, Session Duration etc to give this detailed report in a simple manner. This helps to deliver incremental insights and help marketers to achieve valuable insights and also helps to improve and optimize the website. Anonymous client id and user id will be surfed in this report as a part of the release.
Note: Client Id has been blurred For Security reasons
The main user explorer page shows a list of client ids collected from visitors devices and browsers along with the sessions bounce rate, average duration, revenue, transactions and goal conversion rate. We get all these things in one place which makes us understand and optimize more comfortably. Google analytics shows user activity history and time stamps each site interaction. The client id view can be filtered by page view, goal, E-commerce or events and individual entry can be clicked for additional data.
