Your main Google Analytics view needs to be in EST in order for dashboard reporting to be accurate. To find out how to check and change your Google Analytics time zone, check out this help guide.

Once you've done that, you can set up a separate view in your own time zone that will start collecting data immediately. In a few days, you'll have a current, correct view to use for your own reports. 

We'll need you to keep your main GA view in EST for the historical data the Mediavine dashboard needs.

To set up a separate dashboard, please follow these directions:


Navigate to your Google Analytics account, and click the "Admin" button. 

Locate the "View" column. It is the 3rd one over.

Click the small arrow to the right of your URL, and choose the "Create New View option.

Now create a new view in your own time zone.

Click the "Create View" option, and you are done!

You'll now have two different views in your GA property. It'll start accumulating data immediately. It will not have data from the past, so if you need reports from historical data you'll need to go into your MPN EST view.

You can easily access your new view right from the top menu on the main analytics page:

Let us know if you have any questions at publishers@mediavine.com or by clicking the blue chat bubble in the bottom right of your screen.
