What Happened To Email Scheduling And PDF Export In Google Analytics?

by David Whitehouse

Back in November on the Google Analytics blog they announced the release of email scheduling and PDF export for the new version of Analytics claiming that “both email scheduling and PDF export functionality will be the new interface in a few weeks.” – almost 5 months on this still isn’t the case.

There are a host of complaints on that blog post of people desperately needing this feature (myself included) with absolutely no response from Google – so what’s gone wrong? Have Google released it but forgotten to enable it on certains accounts? Does anyone reading this blog have access? The Google Analytics accounts I have access to through Bronco and personally don’t have this functionality yet.

There are people complaining about this on every single blog post, and this isn’t the only feature they’ve announced but appear to have messed up on when it came to the release:
Customize your standard reports – I’ve still not got this although it shows a photo with Email as an option aswell – perhaps it’s just those at Google that have this version?

Share your custom reports, advanced segments and dashboards – one of the first comments is a question about the four month overdue release of PDF exports and email functionality.

Refining the new Google Analytics – this includes a comment by one user called Brendan, who left caps lock on in order to raise attention to the issues – it went unheard as far as I can see.

I think Brendan speaks for all of us there.

So Google, what gives? Get it sorted…
