I'd like to add a filter to my Google Analytics data. On the administration page for a property, I click on Filters but get a blank view with the message:

There is no data for this view.

Which is fine, I think, because I haven't made any filters yet. However, I see no way to create a filter on this page either. What am I missing?

  • Filters require edit permissions at the Account level of your GA account. Check to see that you have at least that.

To be able to add/edit GA filters, you need to have the at least Edit level permissions at the Account level, because filters are an Account level property.
