Custom analytics reports are editable, adjustable and revisable. Custom data can be compiled from sources including Twitter, Google Analytics, Facebook Insights and Ow.ly. Data may also be supplemented with textual commentary. 

Important: Viewing a report or updating existing content on a report will not use points. Adding new modules to an existing report will use points. Learn more.
