Adding a new user into your Google Analytics account couldn’t be easier. However, if you are new to Google Analytics it can seem like a very dauting task. So, whether you are adding a new user within your business or you are adding an agency user, so they can manage your account, we have you covered with our easy guide below.

But before we begin, there are a few requirements you must met before you can add a new user.

  • You will need the permissions ‘Manage Users’ and ‘Edit’ in your current account
  • The destination account must have less than 50 properties
  • The destination account must be able to access Google products (not all business email addresses can do this)

Step 1: Login

First login to your Google Analytics console which you can find here https://www.google.com/analytics
