How to change the date in Google Analytics on an iPad

June 2, 2010 5 Comments

The iPad doesn't do Flash. This means that, if you want to look at Google Analytics on your iPad, you can't obviously change the dates you're looking at - as the date range setting, pictured, is a Flash file.

The date range in Google Analytics won't load on an iPad as it uses Flash.

You can still change the dates manually, however. Look at the URL when you first go into Google Analytics. It will look something like this:

https://www.google.com/analytics/reporting/?reset=1&id=XXXXXX&pdr=20100502-20100601

I've obscured my ID for (maybe misguided) security reasons. Anyway, the key to changing the date range on your iPad it to manually edit the pdr= value at the end, which shows the from and to date ranges, in the format YYYYMMDD.

So, if you wanted to change Google Analytics to show just one day, the 2nd of June, you'd manually edit the URL to:

https://www.google.com/analytics/reporting/?reset=1&id=XXXXXX&pdr=20100602-20100602

I've changed both the from and to values to 20100602.
