Configure a tile in an Analytics report

Configure tiles in your Analytics reports to display aggregated or comparative data. You can also display data in different visualization styles or sizes. There is no limit to the number of tiles you can create but you can only display up to 100 tiles.

Select the social accounts to display in each tile or select them at the report level for every tile in the report.

For detailed information on visualizations in reports, see Visualizations in Analytics reports.
