Google Analytics Accordion Navigation Chrome Extension


ga-accordion-nav-440The Google Analytics interface was updated this week. Gone is the familiar orange navigation bar at the top of the page. In its place now is a unified interface that shares commonality with other Google properties around the web, especially after the interface changes in Google AdWords and Tag Manager.

One thing that was not changed, however, is the functionality of the left-hand navigation. We here at LunaMetrics have been jonesing for a return to the classic functionality of the interface, circa 2010, which allowed users to click on a menu header to immediately collapse all other open menus.

ga-accordion-navToday I’m pleased to share that we’ve written a simple Chrome extension to restore this classic functionality. Click on Real-Time, and Audience automatically collapses. No need to scroll excessively down the page. Couldn’t be easier.

I hope that you GA power users out there might find it as useful as we have!
