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".

    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.

    YES, I'm desparate for more analytics. I'm still with SproutSocial for this reason.. I can't afford to lose the extended analytics.

    This would be such a helpful feature. This tool would almost be perfect if it had a longer history of analytics. I would pay more for this feature.

    We need more analytics than 3 months!

    Considering a move to another program - really need analytics much more accessible whenever needed- not just 3 months.

    Yes- Year over year! I was going to sign up with you depsite not supporting Facebook but I want year over year so I can see growth (or not)- will go with a platform that has a fuller/broader offering.

    This is a bummer. Why pay for a tool, when it just erases your data...

    Highly agree and would like to upvote. With Buffer we can see in depth analytics back dating at least two years. Considered switching to Later and like the scheduling, link in bio and ability to add notes and tags to media in the gallery, but without the analytics we do not see as much value.

    NEED MORE DATA. I am currently shopping for new software. Got a call with Sprout Social today.

    I would like to see total likes per week/month/year instead of a weekly breakdown and a separate report. Data is in two different places
