23 Jan 17 New Release: Exporting Gmail Meter Data into Google Sheets
Hope everyone’s getting a great start to their new year. We aimed to hit the ground running and have been working hard to bring you the latest feature added to Gmail Meter – exporting report data into Google Sheets!
From now on, you will notice that your email address is now displayed at the top right corner of every Gmail Meter report.
By clicking on your address, you’ll have the option to Export to Spreadsheet. Selecting this option for the first time will cause Google to prompt you to provide Gmail Meter access to your Google Drive. Once access is granted, a Google Sheet will generate containing the data found in that specific report.
The resulting file should automatically open and will look along the lines of the following –
This feature is now live on every report that has been generated for you. This means you can go back to any report and export all of your Gmail Meter data into one single centralized Google Sheet. Each report’s data will be exported into a separate tab within the same file. In addition, each Google Sheet export file is labeled with the email address associated with the exported data contained inside.
This was a decision we made to address an alternative use case after talking to our users. While many of our users are interested in their email analytics for personal interests, we have been notified of the need for better internal reporting of email productivity within teams. With a Google Sheet, it’s incredibly simple to share this reporting with a manager or a supervisor. And with the associated email address already labeled, management can easily search through a folder with all of the relevant Google Sheet files.
We’re very excited to hear your thoughts on this new feature. We welcome any and all feedback, give it a try today and send us your comments! And as always, stay tuned for new updates from the Gmail Meter team.
