For years, when I would log on to Google Analytics the traffic graphs would show the number of daily sessions on the chart.

When I logged on earlier today, instead of having the sessions figures as the default numbers on the charts, it appears that the user count is now the daily figure being used on the graph.

Not the biggest deal, but I'm just so used to seeing the session figures first.

I didnt see an option to change it back.

GSC is in the process of some major changes: [webmasterworld.com...]

So maybe Analytics is also.

I guess they did update analytics, but appears not everyone has had this update so far.

I think once you have been pushed to the new one there is no going back to the old one. To me it seemed like change for the sake of change (which I hate) but it sounds like you're saying at least one feature is missing. I suppose I don't use that feature since I didn't notice that aspect.

I think if 800,000 log into Analytics each day, and only 300,000 go deeper than the first screen, you put some baby dashboards there, to lessen server load.
Yep, jaded.
