Some of them not working? If you’re a genius like me, it’s probably because you pressed one of the keys on accident and it took you to the search box. Make sure you are out of the search box when you try these.

  1. The d c and d x shortcuts rule! No data you get from Google Analytics is usefull for making decisions without those two contexts: comparison to previos period and comparison to previous year.

  2. Hi Farid,
    thx for summarizing. Do you see any possibility to create own shortsuts for lets say the last 90 days?
    Best regards from Munich

  3. That’s a great idea Alexander! I don’t see you being able to create custom keyboard shortcuts happening anytime in the near future, but you never know what Google has up their sleeves…
