Enhancements to the Home page

The Home page of Google Analytics 4 properties now features the following new enhancements:

New welcome tutorial

Google Analytics now includes a brief tutorial on the Home page, aimed at new users of Google Analytics 4. This tutorial provides an introduction to essential concepts and settings to help you get started with your new property.

New banner along the top of the Home page

For Editors and Administrators who use Google Analytics data to advertise with Google Ads, a banner titled “Verify your Google Ads settings” will now appear at the top of the Home page. The banner outlines the essential tasks that need completion for bidding against Google Analytics 4 data. Once you mark all the tasks as complete in Setup Assistant, the banner will disappear.

Improvements to the Suggested for you section

In the “Suggested for you” section, you’ll now find cards that are popular across all Analytics properties (aimed at assisting new Google Analytics 4 users in getting started) and cards that you frequently revisit.

Dismiss suggestions, insights, and recommendations

If a card appears in either the “Suggested for you” or “Insights & recommendations” section that is not relevant to you, you can dismiss it by clicking the thumbs down button. This feedback will help Google Analytics to better tailor the Home page for you in the future.

When you click the thumbs down button, Analytics will remove the card from your Home page, and it will not appear again for 30 days. Please note that if you do not submit the feedback form that appears after clicking the button, the card will remain visible for the remainder of your session, but it will be removed in future sessions.

All insights and recommendations, including those you dismissed, can still be accessed from the Insights Hub.

Open the Setup Assistant from anywhere

Each page of Google Analytics 4 properties now features an action button located at the bottom right corner. When you hover over the button, the number of tasks that you have marked as complete in Setup Assistant will be displayed. Clicking the button will open up Setup Assistant in Analytics, allowing you to continue with completing the necessary setup tasks.
