We have been looking at a report that is generated everyday but I’ve noticed that there has been so inconsistencies of data and it seems very strange.
The data seems to differ when adding a day dimension and a time dimension. Although both dates are the same? (see below. I know the image isn't very clear but for OCT 8 2019 unique visitors = 670 and for 'yesterday (also Oct 8th)' unique visitors = 666 )
The ‘yesterday’ time dimension is also Oct 8th.
Please can you give me an explanation of why this could be happening because it is effecting our reporting.
Maybe the report suite is in a different time zone and Yesterday is not October, 8. Hover the mouse cursor over the Yesterday plate and click on icon to check the date it returns.
What's within the segment? Its possible that there is some bleed due to cross day visits.
If, for example, you use the 'all visits' segment do you still see the same?
Regardless a difference of that amount isn't really impactful
