Reporting Overview

Generate Reports

Signal offers two types of reports: Site Statistics Reports and Site Configuration Reports.

  • Statistics Reports provide analytics around site counts, tag fires and page views for your account. 
  • Configuration reports provide exports of the configuration of tags, pages and data elements in your account.

Report History

The Report History tab gives you access to download reports that have been generated. Each report you have pulled previously is listed here, including date the report was pulled, the name designated while creating the report, the report type, and current status of the report. Reports which are available for download will have a download link available in the status column. Reports which are currently being processed will be listed as “generating” until they are ready for download.
