    • This will filter the data in any tab you're in.
    • A week in the report starts on Sunday by default, when the date range selected consists of a week, or when the frequency is set to Weekly.
  • In the upper left, click the Page types dropdown menu to filter the page type you want to analyze. By default, Landing pages will be selected.
