In this knowledge base article, we’ll show you to add a user to your Google Analytics account.

If you’re using Universal Analytics, the process for adding a user is relatively straightforward.

Step 1: Navigate Admin Tab

First, log into your Google Analytics account and click on the Admin tab.

Step 2: Add User Details

Now, you’ll need to enter the new user’s email address and select their level of access.

There are 5 different levels of access that you can grant to a user:

  • Administrator: The administrator has full access to all aspects of the account, including adding and removing users, adjusting settings, and viewing reports.
  • Editor: The editor can also view and adjust settings, as well as create, edit, and share reports.
  • Analyst: The analyst has access to view reports and creates segments, but cannot make any changes to the account settings.
  • Viewer: The viewer can only view reports that have been shared with them and cannot make any changes or adjustments.
  • None: Finally, the “none” setting means that the user does not have access to Google Analytics at all.

You can adjust a user’s access level at any time by going to the “User Management” section of the Settings page.

Step 3: Save User Settings

Once you’ve entered the user’s email address and selected their access level, click on the Add button to save your changes. You can also check to “Notify new users by email” to send them an email notification that they’ve been added to your account.

For further ado, see the screenshot below:
