Select Audience, then Mobile Device Info. This will list out all of the different mobile devices, including tablets.
Hope this helps!
Thanks very much! I'll give it a go.
On second thoughts, I think I mean I just want to see overall traffic for both mobile and tablet devices. So in the way that you can chose to see just 'tablet traffic' or 'mobile traffic' as an advanced segment in GA - rather than by iPad etc.
Is that possible?
That data point is in the core reporting api now as 'device category' (see here Platform / Device - Dimensions & Metrics Reference - Google Analytics — Google Developers ) but Tableau hasn't incorporated the additional dimensions/metrics Google has rolled out yet. They've said they're working on it but no timing as of yet that I've heard.
Thanks Jeremy, that's a real shame. Means i'm back to the normal, hideous amount of exporting from GA
Agreed, its a shame, but hopefully one that will be remedied soon? Couldn't be sure though.
The workaround I'm doing now is using an excel plugin like NEXT Analytics, which does have full API access to pull my data in and then point Tableau to that source of data. It's annoying, in that paying for NEXT is another $299 a year, but its better than pulling 10 different reports from the GA interface and pasting them together. I'd be interested to know what you end up doing.
