* Broken view / Error message
If you cannot see a preview of your data, go back a few steps and check your setup. The most common causes are:
  • Date range - we recommend a smaller date range. If you need to load historical data, check our guide.
  • Invalid metrics, attributes or breakdowns, or their combination - you may not have any values for them.
