The February 2016 gShift release includes several minor usability updates as well as the four major items detailed below:

Google Adwords Data Now Available in the Web Presence Report

gShift users now have the option of including valuable Google Paid Adwords campaign data alongside their Organic Search data within the Web Presence Report. Report on impressions, clicks and cost for up to three campaigns during a single time period or across two comparative date ranges. The data can be presented in both tabular and graphical timeline formats for easy analysis.

Please contact your Client Success Manager or if you have any questions about how to start pulling this important data into your ad hoc or scheduled reports.

Website Conversion Analysis Timeline Beacon

The Website Conversion Analysis Timeline enables users to visually analyze how visitors to a website are converting by channel over a specific period of time. Goals from Google Analytics can be organized into groups in gShift to compare how many and what types of conversions are being completed by channel. Beacons can also be created and configured for different timeframes within the same dashboard for additional comparative analysis.

Please contact your Client Success Manager or to find out more about configuring goals in Google Analytics or Goal Groups in gShift and leveraging this valuable new Beacon.

Activity Tracker Beacon

Agencies or organizations leveraging activities and activity tracking in gShift can create a Beacon to monitor single or multiple users, their activities, due dates and time spent on each activity at the Agency, Client or Web Presence level. These activities can in turn be downloaded in a .CSV or calendar format for offline review and maintenance.

Contact if you have any questions about this Beacon, other Beacons or setting up Custom Agency, Client or Presence Dashboards.

Site Audit Custom Filters

gShift has added a Custom Filter to Site Audit configuration for those who wish to focus an audit on a specific section or group of pages. This feature can also be used to exclude pages, which you’ve determined do not need to be audited. Advanced users can even build their own Regular Expressions to define very specific inclusions or exclusions.

Contact support if you require assistance defining, which pages of your website you wish to include or exclude in an Audit.
