Using “Real Time Users” is a great way to look at your website but it doesn’t give you a good overview of what happened over a period of time. The  active user metric should be used with the “Active Users Report”. The ” Active Users Report ” compares visitors to your website within the last 1 to 30 days in the selected time period.

The ” Active Users Report” can be found under “Audience”
