The template consists of four pages: one that compares session and bounce rate metrics for all three linked views and three that compare each combination of GA data sources.
There’s room for three possible data sources as placeholders:

  1. Production property, Main view
  2. Production property, Test view
  3. Test property, Main view

You may not need all of those data source combinations – for example, if your Production property test view configuration is identical to your production property main view configuration, you may not need that page of the report –  but the combinations are there if you need them.
