Why is Zoho Analytics so damn hard to set up?

Why is Zoho Analytics so damn hard to set up?

Hi

I am a Zoho One user and small business owner. I use quite a few Zoho apps and for the most part can get things to work as long as it does not require Deluge. With one exception, Zoho Analytics! I have attempted setting somethings up on my own but there is way too much information on the help pages and most of it seems geared towards more advanced users.

I am trying to see how to pull custom reports to monitor our email stats from Zoho Campaigns, maybe look at some simple financial reports from Zoho Books. It might also be good to add CRM and Sales IQ so that we see what is really happening with leads, conversions etc...

I reached out to the Analytics support team for a demo, some help with initial set up and they sent me to the never ending help page. 

I have set up and used other analytic type apps like Google Analytics, ahrefs, Semrush and other site or SEO Analytics without any real problems. Of course you may always have to get a little help here or there if you get stuck, but all in all I get things working.

What am I missing here? Is this a developers only tool? Do I really need to hire a Zoho Partner to set up analytics reporting on my Zoho apps?

Regards,

Totally disappointed!
