Heed Google Analytics’ Warning About Data Retention—Or Risk Losing Years of Stored Info

Guess what type of email we love getting here at Valet? Anything that isn’t a notification.

It’s not that notifications upset us. We know they’re necessary. It’s just that we receive so many of them.

The reason we get so many notifications is that we support and love so many websites. Each of those websites is wired up to many services, and all of those services send out notifications.

Actually, truth be told, it feels more like what we do is decode rather than review them. But it’s only by carefully deconstructing and digesting each notification that we’re able to stay on top of all the technical mumbo-jumbo and geeky stuff (and in so doing spare our awesome clients the trouble of doing any of that work themselves).
