Need to give a colleague, client or agency partner access to a specific Google Analytics account? The good news is that granting access takes all of 60 seconds! Let's walk through the process step-by-step.
1. Log in to your Admin-Level Account
Navigate to www.google.com/analytics and log in to your administrator account (you must have administrator access to complete this process).
2. Select your Account
Here you will see your main accounts page, which lists all of the sites you have access to. Select your account by clicking on it.
3. Click the Admin Link
Click on the Admin link in the top navigation.
4. Click on User Management
Next you will see a page with three columns. Click on User Management in the Account column.
5. Add a New User & Assign Access
Now you are on the User Management page. A list of current users will show and the option to add a new user is below this.
Depending on what actions the new user will be completing, you can control the level of access with the drop menu to the right of the add email address box. For example, if the user you are adding will be linking Adwords & Analytics, running campaigns, setting goals, or setting up remarketing campaigns, then you will need to select Edit, Collaborate, Read & Analyze as the kind of access that will be granted. Conversely, if you only want someone to be able to look at the analytics and not make changes to your account, you would select only the Read & Analyze option.
Type in the new user's email address and select the level of permission for the user. Make sure to check the Notify this user by email box. Then Click Add.
Now you are done! An email notification will be sent to the user letting them know they have been granted access.
