How to Add & Edit Google Analytics Users to Your Account

Too many times I have had to verbally walk people through correctly adding us with view report or administrative access to their Google Analytics. In addition, too often has someone added us as a user but not selected which websites under their profile we can view.

Here is how you correctly add a user from start to finish:

Step 1) Login to Google Analytics — www.google.com/analytics

Step 2) Click “User Manager” in the bottom middle of the page underneath the website list

add user, select google analytics profiles

Done.
