GA-Google Analytics

  1. https://analytics.google.com
  2. Login to your account (if you are not already logged in)
  3. Click “Admin” with the gear to the left of it, in the bottom left of your screen
  4. In the far-left Account column, click “User Management” (if you have one master account and the analytics account you’re trying to share is within it, you can click user-management in the middle “property” column)
  5. Click the blue + in the top right
  6. Click add users
  7. Enter the email address you’d like to share with. This should be an email someone can login to Google with
  8. Click Add
  9. If you checked the “notify new users by email” box, the user will be notified

Issues you may encounter:

  • If you have to login once you go to analytics.google.com, you may be redirected to a general account management screen, in that case, just type in analytics.google.com again
  • Sometimes when access is shared with you, access is limited. In the case you want to share full access, all boxes need to be checked. Sometimes if they’re not, the shared account will not have permissions to adjust things like “Goals” or “Annotations”, and “Audience Definitions”
  • If you experience any other hurdles, please reach out to me and I’d be happy to assist
  • You may not have an access level high enough to share users. In this case, the account or person in charge of the account must be located, and share that access
