This negates you needing to dig around looking for Javascript and tweaking settings on your own, and also prevents you from sharing your Google Account password (which if you use it for Gmail, Google+, search, etc. has a ton of info about you.)

Here’s how to do it.

  1. Sign in to Google Analytics.
  2. Click the Admin button near the top right of the page. partial screenshot of Google Analytics dashboard

Choosing everything but Manage Users is key if you want a developer to be able to get the code he needs and set your site all up.

There you go!
