When we’re building a site, and particularly when we’re migrating a site, clients often give us Google Analytics access.
When you’re migrating a site from one platform to another, it’s really easy to break the URLs and lose a lot of traffic. So it can brea really important to have Google Analytics access and monitor the site’s traffic.
But, Google never allowed us to leave a Google Analytics account. I had access to sites I worked on back in 2007!
Recently that changed and you’re now allowed to leave accounts that shouldn’t be clogging up your Google Analytics dashboard. Here’s how to do it:
Remove yourself from a Google Analytics account
Head over to https://www.google.com/analytics and login.
You’ll see your main dashboard:
Click “Admin” in the toolbar:
- Select the account you want to leave via the pulldown Account menu.
- Click User Management
Click the blue “Remove myself from this account” button:
That’s all there is to it. Process complete!
