Now you’ll notice there’s a User Management link under every column. That’s because there are 3 levels of access: Account, Property and View:

  • Account: Allow users to add other users, add additional websites, and link AdWords and AdSense data.
  • Property: Allow users to access the tracking code, adjust the retargeting code and adjust settings on a particular website.
  • View: Allow users to view reports, add goals and content groupings.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to give someone Property access to your website analytics.

To do that, click the User Management link in the middle, under the Property column.

Step 2: Add Permissions to a User

Now you’ll be asked to enter the email of the user to whom you’d like to give access. You can give permissions to manage users, collaborate, edit or read and analyze. Usually, MonsterInsights support will need Edit access.

You can select Notify this user by email to send a notification to each user you’re adding. Then, click Add.
