How to Give Someone Access to Your Google Analytics Account
Today we’ll walk through how to add someone to your Google Analytics account–without just giving them your Gmail address.
1. Login to Google Analytics
Which you can do at analytics.google.com with the Google / Gmail account associated with your analytics data.
2. Select the Property You Want from the Top Left of the Screen
3. Click Admin Near the Bottom Left of the Page
4. Choose Which Level of Access You Want to Give Them
The three columns on the next page represent Account level access (so they can see all properties and views on your account, for example if you’ve got multiple websites), Property level access (which basically equates to a single website or mobile app), or View. In most cases, you’ll want to give them access to a single property. If you’re doing this to give me access, you can provide property or account level access, depending on how easy you want it to be for me to set things up in the future. Please don’t give me View access, unless you just want me to do nothing at all for you, or you’re sure you’ve set up a view properly.
Click User Management beneath Account, Property or View level access.
5. Assign Them Permissions
Once you’re on the next screen, you’ll see a list of people who currently have access and a box to add new people.
You need to add people based on their Google / Gmail account. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Choose which types of access you want to give them from the Read & Analyze dropdown. For me, you should give me at least Edit, Collaborate, Read & Analyze.
Check the box to notify them if you’d like, click Add and you’re golden!
