More extended Analytics - Year over year, entire year, 6 months, or even custom dates

I would like to see the improvement over a longer period of time, or from when my team started implementing new ideas. We used to use iconosquare, but switched to later for easier scheduling but we miss some of the analytics from iconosquare. I would especially like to see year-over-year data as this could be helpful for seeing if new strategies are helping versus going back to "the old ways".

    I agree! Past data especially 1 - 2 years is ideal.

    110% upvote - really important metric for reporting to client on a yearly basis.

    Extended analytics please - very frustrating to have to invest in other tools to access better analytics.

    I agree! It's such a bummer that we can't track anayltics for more than 3 months at a time. We really would like to be able to compare quarters and year over year.

    Upvote! Hand-waving-in-the-air, please-give-this-to-us sort of upvote.

    It's simply essential.

    Yes please. This isn't just needed, it's critical for us to continue using later.

    Please extend analytics. This would be incredibly helpful.

    Agree with everyone here, we definitely need longer periods of reporting (all-time) would be great. 3 months is simply not enough, especially if you miss a few weeks.

    Hello Later Team!

    I highly suggest an additional Analytic report where Agencys can share with Clients not just Weekly Reports but Monthly Reports. The monthly reports share more of a growth meanwhile the weekly doesn't really show much growth. Hopefully this is taken into consideration soon!

    I'm a strong advocate for a more robust reporting system, at least one that can be exported to pdf or something of the sort. My team and I are forced to use a third-party reporting system in tandem with Later's reporting system...

    This would be super useful, even if we were able to see a year . There’s no way I can currently report on how we did through thr FY. If I had known Later only kept data for the lst three months I would have exported my data after each quarter. At this point, I had to sign up for a free trial with Buffer to get these analytics and report on the FY growth.
