Analytics Edge helped me save a lot of work, but its could be a bit a more user-friendly
Vorteile: Once set up it just works. I use it for weekly and monthly reporting (KPI's, spend, conversion, sales). Its an important activity, but also one I want to spent as little time on as I have to. Analytics Edge allows me to automate a large part of the work. Using both the basic Analytics Edge plugin as well as the paid Google AdWords addon.
Nachteile: The whole thing could be a bit more user friendly. Setting up queries is quite compex, and when things break it can be a hard to figure out why. For instance, I tried to remove old queries. Tried deleting cells, rows, columns, tabs, anything but nuking the file all together. But every time I ran the 'All queries' there was the old tab again, with the data I no longer needed. Took me way to long to figure out how to actually delete the query in Excel (still haven't found the option in the plugin, it suggests I cut the query using the edit option, but that doesn't work for me). There's a couple more things where the plug in has some counter intuitive ways of working, or where it only accepts specific input. But I accept those things, cause once you get it working, it just makes things easier.

How to really speed up your reports
Kommentare: The ability to quickly extract information out of Google Analytics means that we can analyse clients issues far quicker. For example, recently we pulled down the entrances, bounce rate, pages per session for 6 key parts of a site across a 12 month period which allowed us to quickly determine where the site had an actual issue
Vorteile: While there are plenty of tools out there that will allow you to download data from Google Analytics and Google Search Console, Analytics Edge is the only one that we have found that allows you to transform the raw data into something actionable The Repeat macro facility alone is worth the money as it allows you to send multiple queries to Google Analytics and Google Search Console and place them all one spreadsheet. Access to the management API's for Google Analytics means that we can now audit clients Google Analytics sites far quicker than ever before
Nachteile: Apart from the very occasional bug (normally quickly fixed), very little

Analytics Edge for agency
I work for an agency so I create reports for clients (Lead Generation / Ecommerce). Reports contain dashboards, tables/charts (segmented by time dimensions, sources, campaign, ad groups, ads, devices,..).
I create many queries and than use them in pivot tables (or Power Pivot where I put togheter more data sources so I can create a big data table from more systems).
I use it daily for checking performance or deeper analysis.
Vorteile: I like that the Analytics Edge download raw data to excel and avoids sampling. Also the price of individual connectors is great. I use free Analytics Add in + Adwords, Facebook, Search Console, Bing connectors.
Nachteile: When I update queries I can´t work with the excel and I have to wait till the refresh finishes (which can be annoying when I have more queries for the longer period with avoid sampling enabled).
