    Does the Google Analytics API work for App property types?

    Emily Williams

      When you set a property in Google Analytics as an App instead of a Website, the names of many of measures are changed.  It appears that Tableau's API doesn't currently allow you to pull in the dimensions and measures relevant to an App.

       

      For example, a Page View in a Google Analytics app is called a Screen View instead.  I tried pulling in PageView measure during the data connection hoping it was just a different naming convention, but unfortunately this does not pull in any data. 

       

      Screen Views in Google Analytics:

      No Screen Views in Tableau (attempting to use Page Views as a proxy):

      No option to add Screen Views in Tableau data connection:
