How to Set Filters for Google Analytics Views and Connect Them with Databox

You can use filters in Google Analytics view to exclude or include data in your reports. When you create views with filters, it is possible to connect that specific Google Analytics view directly into Databox. This connection now only contains filtered data. It is also possible to just connect the default "All Web Site Data" view, and then segment the data with our Query Builder.
