If I have requested that you add me as a user to your Google Analytics account in order to sync your data with your monthly reports or you would just like to know how to add a user to your Google Analytics account, here is a simple step-by-step guide with visuals.
You can also refer to Google’s official help doc: Add, edit, and delete users and user groups, but it may be a little more difficult to follow.
Step 1: Sign in to Google Analytics
Step 2: Click “Admin” in lower left corner
Step 3: Select the account and then the property you wish to grant the user access to
Think of “account” as a collection of different websites you may be tracking and “property” as a single website. A “view” is typically a customized or filtered version of the tracking data. Usually you’ll want to grant access to an account if there are multiple sites the user should have access to or to a property if there is just a single site.
Step 4: Click “User Management” from either the “Account” column or the “Property” column
This will depend on whether you want to grant access to the entire account or just the single property (website).
Step 5: Click the + icon and then click “Add users”
Step 6: Enter the user’s Google Account email address
If you are adding me to your account per my request, I will provide you with my Google Account email address via email.
Step 7: Leave “Notify new users by email” checked, select appropriate permissions, and click “Add” button
I typically only need “Read & Analyze” permissions, but if adding someone else, they might need “Edit, “Collaboration”, or “Manage Users” permissions. Check with them to confirm which permission level they require.
If you added me to your Google Analytics account, I will receive notification and take it from there. I’ll let you know if I need anything else from you.
