In Freeform tables, a total row appears at each breakdown level and can show two totals:
- Grand Total (gray 'out of' number) - this total represents all hits that have been collected, sometimes referred to as 'report suite total'. When a segment is applied either at the panel level or within the freeform table, this total adjusts to reflect all hits that match the segment criteria.
- Table Total (black number) - this total is typically equal to or a subset of the Grand Total. It reflects any table filters applied within the freeform table, including the Include None option.
Display Total Setting
Under Column Settings , there are options to Show Totals and Show Grand Total . If these settings are unchecked, totals will be removed from the table. This may be desired in cases where totals don't make sense, for instance, in certain Calculated Metric scenarios .
Static Row Total settings
Static row totals behave differently, and are controlled under Row Settings .
- Show sum of current rows as the total - this shows a client-side sum of the rows in the table which means the total will not de-duplicate metrics like visits or visitors.
- Show Grand Total - this shows a server-side sum, which means the total will de-duplicate metrics like visits or visitors.
Frequently asked questions
Which 'total' are the gray column percentages based on?
This depends on the Percentages setting selection under Row Settings :
How does the Include Unspecified (None) setting impact totals?
If the Include Unspecified (None) setting is unchecked, the None/Unspecified row will be removed from the table, the Table Total, and will carry through to any calculated metrics that use 'Total' metric types
When custom table filters are applied to a freeform table, do all of my calculated metrics and conditional formatting account for the filter?
Not currently. Include Unspecified (None) will be accounted for, but custom table filters will not impact the following:
In Calculated Metrics, what does the Grand Total metric type reflect?
Grand Total continues to refer to the Grand Total , and does not reflect filters applied to a table or the Table Total .
What total is shown when data is either copied and pasted from a freeform table or downloaded via CSV?
The total row will reflect the Table Total only and respects the column Show Totals setting.
