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 Analytics 360 Suite account.
    Suite Home with organization cards
    Organization configuration
  3. Enter a name for the organization, for example, your company name.
  4. Select the product accounts you want to link to the organization.
    • Click Link.
    • Select each account you want to link, and click SELECT.
    To fully link an account, you have to be a user in the organization and an administrator for the product account. If you're not an administrator for the product account, then you have the option to send an email to the account administrators so they can approve the request.
  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 a user in the organization and an administrative user on that account. If you are not an administrative user on the account, an email request to approve the linking is sent to account administrators.

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.
