Google has launched a new Change History feature in Google Analytics, aimed at helping users understand updates to their accounts.

"Have you ever wanted to learn more about changes made to your Google Analytics account, wanted to refresh your memory as to when a particular profile setting was changed, or wondered who on the team made a goal change? Now, all of that is possible with the launch of Change History," Google's Scott Ellsworth and Matt Matyas say in a joint blog post.

"Change History presents a summary of many important changes to your account over the last 180 days. Users will find records of changes made to users, accounts, properties, profiles, goals, and filters. This feature is available only to Analytics account administrators.," they explain.

Here's what it looks like:

Google is in the process of rolling out Change History. It might be several weeks before you see it. It will appear when you click the "Admin" button, and select the account. You'll see a "Change History" tab.
