How To Share Google Analytics Access

Adding another user to your account? This can be beneficial in case you need help sifting through your marketing data.

Why Share Your Google Analytics Account Access?

Google Analytics is a powerful marketing-analysis tool. It allows you to view and analyze where your website visitors are arriving from and where they spend most of their time on your site. However, because the amount of data is so extensive, sometimes finding an expert in the subject can be beneficial for lead-tracking and more. 

This is where sharing your Google Analytics account could be beneficial. Follow the steps below to log in and navigate to users and their permission settings. Feel free to get in touch with any questions and I’d be glad to assist!

Step 1. Sign In To Google Analytics

If you haven’t already signed in to your Google analytics account, feel free to click the button below which will automatically bring you to the signing in page, assuming you already have signed up for a Google Analytics account. If you have multiple accounts, or even access to multiple accounts, (let’s say you’re an agency or a consultant such as myself)

Step 2. Navigate To Proper Account/View

Within one account it’s possible that you have multiple ‘properties’ or ‘views.’ If you do you’ll click on the top left corner of the screen (right next to the three bar graph Analytics section). Upon clicking on this drop down, a full list of accounts and their properties will appear. Navigate to the correct account and view that you’d like to share.

Step 3. Open Google Analytics Admin Section

Next, we’ll navigate to the ‘admin’ section of the correct account. It’s the bottom left side of your main dashboard screen. You’ll see a menu along the left side of the screen, click on the gear icon that says admin. (circled in red in the screenshot attached)

Step 4. Choose Between Account-Wide or Specific View

If you have multiple accounts (you’re an agency or freelancer/consultant), you might only want to give someone access to a specific ‘view’ or ‘property’ within the entire account. In order to give someone access to your entire account, click on the left column where it says ‘Account User Management.’ (left red circle in the screenshot below). 

If however, you only have one single Google Analytics account (for a singular website), you can navigate to the right column (also circled in red) labelled ‘View User Management.’

Step 5. Click Blue Button To Add User

Upon choosing either the account or user level (from the previous step), you’ll be presented with a new screen. In the top right corner of this new screen, click the blue button.
This will then open a new screen to allow users to invite others via email and set their permissions level.
