2. Smart Reports
Recently released, the new Smart Reports feature is now your quickest way to create client reports! With just a click, automatically generate reports based on your client’s specific connected integrations. Each section of the report populates with the top-used metrics for that integration.
Use Smart Reports to:

3. HighLevel Integration
Several new integrations were added to AgencyAnalytics’ list of 80+ marketing channels in 2023—including AdForm, ServiceTitan, Google Ad Manager, and more—but the most-connected new integration has been HighLevel.
This agency-focused sales and marketing platform integration makes it easy for your team to:
Track leads as they progress through the sales funnel
Monitor the value of leads at various stages of the customer journey
Manage contact status and conversations with leads
4. Data Warehousing
AgencyAnalytics has started implementing data warehousing across integrations to give you access to more data than ever before.
The ability to track and report on more historical data in your client reporting means you get to:
Dive deeper into your campaign performance
Leverage longer-term trends for impactful decision-making
Explore a more comprehensive view of your client’s performance journey in their various platforms
Collecting a years’ worth of data and beyond takes time. But look for data warehousing to roll out on even more of your favorite integrations in the coming months!
5. Section Templates & Campaign Templates
Why start your reporting from scratch when you can hit the ground running with a template? After all, templates make it much easier for your team members to use your agency’s standard reporting setups for every client, every time.
Now, not only can you create dashboard and report templates, but you can also create section and even entire campaign templates!
Section templates: Speed up and enhance your dashboard and report building process. Even use your favorite templates interchangeably across dashboards and reports.
Campaign templates: Save time and streamline your client onboarding process by using campaign templates pre-populated with the dashboard sections and reports your team uses on repeat.
6. Clone a Campaign
Want to duplicate the setup of a specific campaign in your account but don’t necessarily need to turn it into a template? Try cloning it!
Choose which data you’d like to port over to the new campaign—or port it all over. And you’re done.
7. Multi-Campaign Dashboards
Account-level data visibility and aggregation have been top requests this year. And this particular release marks an initial stepping stone toward a number of exciting new developments in the works.
Creating a custom dashboard at the account level is a great way to start tracking important KPIs across more than one of your client campaigns.
This feature is ideal for:
8. Google Sheets App
Early in 2023, the new AgencyAnalytics for Google Sheets app went live through Google Workplace Marketplace. This app offers an easy way to drill deeper into your data and find innovative marketing insights for your clients!
Now included in both the Agency and Enterprise plan levels, use this app to:
Pull key metrics from 80 marketing platforms directly into Google Sheets
Cross-compare data sets from multiple campaign integrations
Combine your in-house data with data from any AgencyAnalytics integration
Overcome missing data and transform or normalize data
Manipulate data in Google Sheets and route it back into AgencyAnalytics for client reporting
9. Advanced Filtering
Data precision is key when it comes to effective client reporting. Two new features introduced this year get you the specific data you need faster and more consistently using advanced filtering.
The first is ‘contains’ filtering at the ad campaign level for many of AgencyAnalytics’ ad integrations, as well as Google Analytics 4 and Google Search Console. This feature lets you set and save a specific keyword to tailor your data view, be it for ad campaigns or web pages.
10. Report Design Customization
Finally, customizable report cover pages were a highly requested feature this year. AgencyAnalytics listened and now your team can add more style and creativity to entire marketing reports!
Enhance your cover page and report sections with background colors and custom-designed images—even apply a background to multiple sections at a time
Customize your report titles, including text color and alignment
Set your title and image widget backgrounds and borders to transparent
Turn your section headers off and on with just a click
Stay tuned! We have even more report design enhancements coming soon.
