Add/modify/delete users

You need to have the Manage Users permission in order to add/modify/delete users.

Add users

You can add as many users to an account as you need.

You can add users at the account, property, or view level. The level at which you add a user determines that user's initial access. For example, if you add a user at the view level, then that user belongs to the account, but initially has no permissions at the property or account level. You can change permissions for a user at any time.

To add a new user:

  1. Click Admin at the top of any Analytics page.
  2. Use the menus at the tops of the columns to select the account, property, or view you want.
  3. To add a user at the account level, click User Management in that column.

    To add a user at the property or view level, click Permissions in the appropriate column.
  4. Under Add permissions for, enter the email address for the user's Google Account.
  5. Select the permissions you want: Manage Users, Edit, View. Learn more about permissions.
  6. Select Notify this user by email to send a notification to each user you're adding.
  7. Click Add.

Modify users

You can modify the permissions for any user at any level in an Analytics account. For example, if you have given a user Read permission for only a single view, you can subsequently also give the user Edit permission for only that view. Or you can give that user Edit permission at the property level, and thereby also give Edit permission for every view in that property.

Keep in mind that you can give a user more permissions as you move down the account hierarchy, but you cannot give a user fewer permissions than you assigned at higher levels. For example, if you assign a user Edit permissions at the account level, then that user also has Edit permissions at the property and view levels (and you cannot revoke those permissions at the property or view level). Conversely, you can assign a user Edit permissions at the view level, but assign no permissions at either the property or account level. Learn more about permissions.

To modify permissions for an existing user:

  1. Click Admin at the top of any Analytics page.
  2. Use the menus at the tops of the columns to select the account, property, or view you want.
  3. To modify permissions at the account level, click User Management in that column.

    To modify permissions at the property or view level, click Permissions in the appropriate column.
  4. Use the search box at the top of the list to find the user you want. Enter a full or partial address( e.g., janedoe@gmail.com or janedoe).
  5. Use the menu in the Permissions column to add or remove permissions.
  6. Click Save.

Delete users

Although you can add users at any level in the account hierarchy, you can delete users only at the account level.

To delete a user:

  1. Click Admin at the top of any Analytics page.
  2. Use the menu at the top of the Account column to select the account you want.
  3. Click User Management in that column.
  4. Use the search box at the top of the list to find the user you want. Enter a full or partial address( e.g., janedoe@gmail.com or janedoe).
  5. Click delete for the user you want to delete.
