This report shows the visits to your site during the selected time interval according to the device used by your visitors.
In particular, the “Desktop vs Mobile” report allows you to compare the trend of visits by visitors utilising a desktop device to the trend of visits using a mobile device. 

The first table provides the following information:
  • Visits (independently from the device)
  • Visits from Desktop Devices
  • Visits from Mobile Devices
  • Visits from Tablets
  • Visits from Smartphones
For each row, the table shows:
  • Value
  • %: it shows the percent of visits from mobile devices out of the Total visits
  • Daily average
  • Trend
 
Filters
  • Time period: by using the drop-down menu you can filter the data for the time period you want to analyze.
  • Advanced calendar: you can select specific time periods other than those available with the drop-down menu "time period", thereby choosing freely the time period to examine. For more info on using the Advanced calendar, click here.

Chart
On the horizontal axis, the chart shows the days or the months of the represented period and, on the vertical axis, the number of visits, the number of visits from desktop devices and the number of visits from mobile devices.
