Don’t Overlook This Crucial Remote Work Related Metrics Task

If you manage your organization’s Google Analytics account, there’s a critical task you need to complete in order to filter out all of the incoming web traffic from remote working locations. Good news is you can leave all of these new filters in place once everyone returns to the office.

You can find step by step instructions with annotated screenshots at an article I published at ArtsHacker.

Don’t Forget To Filter Out Your Remote Work IP Addresses From Google Analytics

As an aside; yes, I am paying attention to news coming out of the Kennedy Center. Rest assured, we will be examining it in short order but it’s fluid enough to give it a few days before jumping in.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
