Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is a powerful tool that provides valuable insights into your website's performance. Collaborating with team members and stakeholders is essential to make data-driven decisions and maximize the benefits of GA4. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of granting access to your GA4 account to others, allowing them to explore and analyze data.
Begin by visiting the Google Analytics website (analytics.google.com) and sign in using your Google account credentials. Make sure you have administrative access to the GA4 account you want to manage.
Once you're logged in, you'll see the homepage with various options on the left-side panel. Locate and click on the "Admin" option at the bottom left corner. This will take you to the administration settings, where you can manage account access.
In the administration settings, you'll find two access management options: "Account Access Management" and "Property Access Management." Click on "Account Access Management" as it allows you to grant access to the entire GA4 account.
Note: "Property Access Management" is relevant if you have multiple websites within one GA4 account, and you wish to grant access to a specific website profile without giving access to the entire account.
In the "Account Access Management" section, you'll see a list of current users with access to your GA4 account. To add a new user, click on the blue plus icon located at the top right corner of the page. This will open a form to add new users.
Type the email addresses of the individuals you want to grant access to. You can add multiple email addresses, separating them with commas. Ensure that the "Notify new users by email" checkbox is marked, as this will automatically send an invitation to the added users.
Select the appropriate role for each user. GA4 offers three user roles:
Double-check the email addresses and user roles you've selected. Once you're sure everything is accurate, click the blue "Add" button in the upper right corner. This will initiate the process of granting access to the added users.
The invited users will receive an email inviting them to join your GA4 account. They must have a personal Google account to accept the invitation. Instruct them to click the invitation link and sign in with their Google credentials.
After signing in, the invited users will gain access to your GA4 account. They can now explore reports, analyze data, and contribute to data-driven decision-making.
Granting access to your Google Analytics 4 account is a straightforward process that empowers your team to collaborate effectively and make informed decisions based on website performance data.
