If you are adding views to properties, it is most likely that you 1) have a Google Analytics account, and if you don’t you can check out how to set one up here, and 2) have properties set up, but if you don’t, you can learn how to here.
Adding views is very similar to adding properties.
Whenever a property is created, a view with All Website Data is automatically created. According to Google’s best practices, it is ideal that this is changed to Unfiltered View (raw data) – this becomes the view that holds, you guessed it, all your data, i.e. No filters added.
Next, you will want to add a view named Test View – this is If you want to be more cautious when you start adding filters and goals before applying them to your Master View.
Finally, you will need to add a view named Master View – this view will be used as the view for the analysis of your data after all configurations of filters, goals, segments, etc., are processed.
Instead of having to add a “new view” every time, you can just copy you master view and just make a copy!
In the view formally named All Website Data (Now Unfiltered View), on the top right-hand side, you can select the button Copy view, and you’ll have the view already configured. All you will be left to do is changing the names to either Test or Master and click Save.
You have now added views to your property. With these levels of views, your data will be protected from any configuration such as goals, filters, segmentations, etc., you will add in the future.
