Google Analytics is a powerful web analytics tool that can help you track and understand your website traffic. If you have a team of people who need to have access to your Google Analytics data, you can grant them access at different levels.

Setting permissions for each user

When you grant someone access to Google Analytics, you can also set permissions for them. This will control what they can do with your data, such as view reports, create reports, and edit reports.

To set permissions for each user:

  1. Sign in to Google Analytics.
  2. Click the Admin gear icon in the bottom left corner of the page.
  3. In the AccountProperty, or View column (depending on the level at which you want to set permissions), click User Management.

  5. Under Permissions, select the permissions you want to grant the user.
  6. Click Save.

Tips for granting access to Google Analytics

  • Only grant access to Google Analytics to people who need it. The more people who have access to your data, the more likely it is that something could go wrong.
  • Set permissions for each user carefully. Think about what each user needs to be able to do with your data, and only grant them the permissions they need.
  • Regularly review the permissions of all users. Make sure that everyone still needs the access they have.

By following these tips, you can safely and securely grant access to Google Analytics to the people who need it.
