Frequently Asked Questions


What does the Universal Analytics backup look like?

A quick preview of the tables in each of the 4 data sources is below. Visit this article in the knowledge base for more details of the limits of each data source.

What is a View?

Google Analytics is organized into Analytics Accounts, Properties & Apps that belong to those accounts, and Views on those Properties. A “View” is the basis of a Google Analytics report.  It is a ‘slice’ or a filter on the raw data feed collected by a Property (a domain / website / app). A website can have multiple Views. Some filter out internal traffic, some are for specific sales regions or departments. Google Analytics shows reports for one View at a time.

Is this a monthly service?

No! This product is offered as a one time fee for each view you wish to backup. We will export your data to Sheets, Excel, BigQuery, or CSV files. You will own the data completely, it will not be retained or stored by us.

The export and optional Looker Studio report are the complete deliverable and there are no additional fees charged by us.

How do you retain and dispose of our data?

We extract and assemble the backup within Analytics Canvas before exporting it to your chosen destination. We will retain the data until the end of 2024, at which point we will purge the backup. You may confirm receipt and ask us to purge your data at anytime after your backup has completed. We only extract and deliver the data for the purpose of a backup. Information is not shared with any third-parties or used in any other way.

Is there an affiliate program / can I white-label this?

We are not offering an affiliate program at this time, however if you are interested in selling back-ups in bulk, contact us. While you cannot white-label Analytics Canvas, many agencies and consultants are putting together backups for clients and charging according to their value-add.

How many Views do I need to backup?

Most people only backup one or two views per website. There may be additional views such as test views or employee-only views, but those are usually not necessary to backup.

How can I provide an estimate to my client?

The best approach is to start with a budget. Talk to the client about what they’re willing to spend, and how much detail they would like. There is a direct relationship between level of detail and number of rows.  Review this article about how to finalize your estimate to fit your budget.

What happens if the estimate is wrong?

Pricing will always favor the customer.  If our estimate is too low, you will not be billed or charged for additional rows.  If our estimate is too high, we will refund you the difference between the estimated and actual row count.

Will my UA backup data be sampled?

Analytics Canvas has developed an algorithm to eliminate sampling in most cases. Generally speaking, unless you have over 500,000 sessions in a given day, the data will not be sampled. Learn more about sampling in Universal Analytics.

Can I add to my UA backup before the API turns off?

YES!  You can return through July 2024 to add to your backup up to the number of rows you have paid for. This means that if you backed up 8M rows in August 2023, and in June 2024 realize you're missing some key tables, you can come back and get up to 2M more rows for no additional fee.

How does billing work?

Analytics Canvas will show you the final estimate in the application and provide you with a payment link. You will make the payment by credit card through our reseller, FastSpring LLC.  Return to Analytics Canvas and enter your order number to unlock your credits and run your back-up.  Larger orders can be invoiced and paid by direct bank-transfer.

Do you offer discounts?

There are volume discounts based on the number of rows backed up and the number of views backed-up.  Contact sales@analyticscanvas.com if you are performing multiple backups or if you are backing up a large website.

Who owns the data?

Analytics Canvas does not own the data and does not store the data beyond the retention period. With Read access to a Google Analytics View, anyone can create a backup. The backup will be stored in one of four data destinations. If you choose Excel or CSV, we will generate the files for you to download. If you opt for Sheets or BigQuery, we will directly write the data into your authorized accounts. Those accounts will own the data.

How do I know how many rows my backup will be?

The number of rows will depend on the number of tables, the amount of history, the number of sessions, and the combination of dimensions in each table.

The best way to estimate the number of rows is to use the backup tool to generate a free estimate.  Generally the process takes less than 10 minutes.  

Before running the backup, it will walk you through some steps to help determine what you want to backup and how detailed it should be.  It will then provide you a row estimate based on your configuration.  You can modify and change your tables as often as you'd like before finalizing your backup and running it.

Do I need this if I have the UA 360 BigQuery export?

We highly recommend it! Your data will be in a nested table format. You would have to write complex SQL to get a set of flat tables, or pull a data engineer onto this project and have them study an outdated model in order to write the query that answers your question.  At $198*, it is generally more cost effective to use our backup.

What kind of training and support is available?

We pride ourselves delivering great customer service. If you need help, we will quickly respond. We have thorough documentation on the UA backup product. If you're still having challenges, contact us or attend one of our weekly webinars on Tuesdays at 11AM ET.

How can I share or transfer ownership of the UA Backup Looker Studio Report to the client or another team member?

You can share or transfer ownership of the UA Backup Looker Studio Report, we document the process in this short article - How to Share or Transfer Ownership of the UA Backup Looker Studio Report.

How much does it cost to store and use the UA backup in BigQuery?

Most UA Backups will not cost much or even anything to store, we have a detailed article to help you determine the cost for a UA Backup - How much does it cost to store and use the UA backup in BigQuery?

How do I estimate the cost of a Universal Analytics Backup?

Pricing is variable based on the total amount of data returned, determined by a sum of the total rows delivered in each table. This article shows you how to generate an estimate and refine the backup to fit within your budget - How to estimate the cost of a Universal Analytics Backup
