Can't Update Google Analytics Start and End Date using Batch Macro

Hi everyone,

 

I have a bit of a weird one here... 

I am using a batch macro to update the Start Date and End Date in the Google Analytics tool, however, the dates don't actually seem to update...

 

I parse in the dates that I want to use:

I tried setting the dates as both a date data type and a v_string data type :

My action tools are set up like the following:

However, it seems that the Google Analytics tool ignores this and just uses what was actually set in the tool's GUI...

Unfortunately it seems I can't actually force in what dates I want it to use.

Has anyone else come across this issue? If so, how can I get around it?

 

Thanks for your help.

Just a thought, but can you change it from "Month to Date" to "Custom" and try it again? I wonder if the Month to date is somehow overriding the parameters passed into your macro.

Thanks so much - that worked 🙂

Seems that "custom" is the only option that will allow you to overwrite the dates.
