How do I add a new user to Google Analytics?

It is very easy to add a new user to your Google Analytics account.

You can give anyone access to your Google Analytics account, provided they have a Google account.

You can also define the privileges you give to a new user on your Google Analytics account.

There are three levels of access:

Account Level

Property Level

View Level

Google details what each of these permissions will grant the user here.

Instructions to add a new user to Google Analytics:

1 Login to Google Analytics, here is the login link.

2 Once logged in, click the Admin button found at the bottom of the menu on the left-hand side.

3 You may have access to more that one website in your Google Analytics account, if so choose the property you want to share. If you only have one property, there will only be one website to choose from.

4 In the Account, Property, or View column (this is where you define whether you want to add users at the account, property, or view level), click User Management.

5 You will now see the Account users list, click the + symbol, then click Add new users.
