Google Analytics is a free web analytics service offered by Google. Google Analytics analyzes visitor traffic, showing users how customers engage with their websites, ads, videos and social tools across all of their devices. Google Analytics can help you understand how your customers find, use, and interact with your website. It shows what works well with audiences and what doesn’t, helping you measure site traffic, allowing to tailor site content and marketing strategies
Let’s say you already have Google Analytics for your website, and now you need to know how to grant access to your data. (Don’t forget: you don’t have to give your Google account information over to someone who needs access to your Google account data!)
Seven easy steps below will guide you through this simple process:
- Sign into your account at Google Analytics account. Go to http://www.google.com/analytics/ and click on the Access Analytics button to sign in. If you are using your own Google Analytics account, then log in using your username and password.
- Once you logged into your account, just go to Admin menu and click on ADMIN:
- Under the ACCOUNT, PROPERTY (website) or VIEW you want someone to see, click on User Management menu:
Four permissions are available that you can apply singly or in combination:
|Manage Users||Can manage account users (add/delete users, assign permissions). Does not include Edit or Collaborate.|
|Edit||Can perform administrative and report-related functions (e.g., add/edit/delete accounts, properties, views, filters, goals, etc., but not manage users), and see report data.|
Edit permission is required at the account level to create filters. Edit permission is required at the view level to apply filters.
|Collaborate||Can create personal assets, and share them. Can collaborate on shared assets, for example, edit adashboard or annotation. Includes Read & Analyze.|
|Read & Analyze||Can see report and configuration data; can manipulate data within reports (e.g., filter a table, add a secondary dimension, create a segment); can create personal assets, and share them, and see shared assets. Cannot collaborate on shared assets.|
- From there, you can add the email address of anyone you would like to view your Google Analytics data and choose permission you would like them to have:
5. Click Add.
6. Next step: the person you added to your Google Analytics will need to log into their gmail. Here is what it looks like:
- The added person will need to click on the link provided in an email:
Please log in to Analytics at http://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/ to access this account.
The person will be taken to your Google Analytics site (as a new user they may be asked to log-in again with their gmail account):
