Initial setup

To get the most out of Analytics 360 Suite:

Take these first few steps to establish your branding throughout the 360 Suite, and to make sure you can take advantage of the full spectrum of management features:

Create an organization, and link your company's Google+ page

To log in to the 360 Suite and create an organization, you need to be a user on at least one of the 360 Suite product accounts (e.g., Analytics, Tag Manager, Optimize).

  1. Sign in to your Google Anlaytics 360 account.
    Suite Home with organization cards
  2. Click NEW ORGANIZATION.
    Organization configuration
  3. Link your Google+ page and import your company logo.

    When you link your company’s Google+ profile to the Analytics 360 Suite organization profile, your logo and brand are used throughout.

    If you don’t know the URL for your company’s Google+ profile page, search for the Google+ page with the following query:

    <company name> Google+ profile page

    You’ll find something like:

    https://plus.google.com/+company name

    If your company does not have a Google+ profile, visit Manage your Brand Account to create one.
  4. Under Google+ profile URL, enter the URL for your company's Google+ profile page.
  5. Click Create.

If you don't have a Google+ profile when you create your organization, you can edit the organization details later to add the URL.

Organization configuration

Add administrators to your organization

It's necessary to add additional administrators to your organization to ensure that someone is always available to perform administrative tasks, and manage ownership of and access to your organization. Administrators are visible to any user in your organization.

Follow the instructions in the help center to add administrators.

Link product accounts to your organization

In order to take advantage of features like managing users, controlling product accounts, and billing from a single location, you need to link each product account to the organization.

To link an account, you need to be an administrative user on that account.

Verify previously linked accounts

If you previously linked Google Analytics Premium accounts to your organization, then you need to verify that they are still valid accounts for your organization.

To verify accounts:

  1. In Suite Home, click the organization card, the click Organization settings.
  2. Under Products, click Analytics.
  3. Follow the instructions to verify any of the Analytics accounts that were previously linked to your organization.

Activate the 360 Suite experience for all of the users in your organization

This information applies only to customers who created organizations and linked accounts in earlier versions of the 360 Suite (up until June 2016), but never enabled the Suite experience for their users.

After you have verified your Analytics account links, the next step is to activate the 360 Suite experience for the users in your organization.

  1. In Suite Home, click the organization card, the click Organization settings.
  2. Click Activate, and follow the instructions.

At that point, all of your 360 Suite product accounts are grouped together in your organization, and all of the users in your linked product accounts are synced to the organization so you can manage them from a single location.

Your users have access to Suite Home and to the common header in all of the 360 Suite products (learn more). In addition, users have direct access to all of your product accounts from the common header (learn more).

Once you have activated the 360 Suite experience for your users, you cannot deactivate the experience.
