‘What is a ‘Spinach helpful tip’? – When a friend tells you what you don’t know – especially when you don’t know it!
Starting with something as simple as a new logo in the upper left hand corner, also your user settings icon which used to be a gear is now three dots. This is where you can get to your User settings, Send feedback, and request Help.
The new logo in the upper left hand corner, is where you can toggle the navigation by tapping anywhere within this section or on the down arrow icon – that will allow you to scroll between your accounts, your properties, and your views.
Let’s see, another change that offers up additional advantages around ‘notifications’, when you open up notifications, they will be represented in the form of cards. The new setup includes the ‘bell’ icon or symbol in the upper right hand corner, this icon allows you to view then you can copy any of these notifications as plain text.
Your user icon in the upper right hand corner will allow you to see all of your emails and user accounts you’re logged into. This will also act as a link to your global Google account settings.

Also, as we discussed in our earlier Spinach Helpful Tip of the Week when we reviewed the article Exploring Google Analytics’ New User Interface by Marcus McCarthy here are some other updates:
The page listing all accounts was removed and the functionality of the categories was changed. You will notice that when a user selects a category in the navigation now, their previously opened category closes. This is a good thing because it prevents a huge list from opening when you are digging into your data.
Also, the “Admin” Tab, which used to be at the top of the page, well now it’s been moved to the bottom left of the page.
As we find updates and new information, great articles and authors to share we will bring them to you. Hope you enjoyed our Spinach Helpful Tip of the Week.

What is a ‘Spinach helpful tip’?
Have you ever walked around all day with something in your teeth, but no one tells you. A real friend doesn’t let that happen, they take you to the side and tell you. It may be embarrassing at first but not as bad as finding out at the end of the day after meeting with clients and your boss about a raise – when it is too late to do anything about it. Especially if your trying to create a positive brand image and lead your organization to success!
