Transfer ownership of GA accounts in BULK

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We have access to 3-4 google accounts that have created Google Analytics properties over the years.  If you go into each one, you will see dozens under each account.

 

We'd like to combine all of these properties into one account, without having to go into 50 different accounts and sharing or whatever.

 

Anyway to do this?

 

Thanks;

Hi @Steve J

Here is the instruction for you. Although, there is no such option as bulk transferring, so you will need to do the same procedure for each of the properties you need to transfer. :

 

"How to move a property

  1. Sign in to your Analytics account.
  2. Select the Admin tab.
  3. In the ACCOUNT column, use the menu to select the account that contains the property you want to move.
    If you have a lot of accounts, use the search box to help you find the right one.
  4. In the PROPERTY column, select the property you want to move.
  5. Click Property Settings, then click Move property.
  6. Select the destination account.
  7. Choose your permissions settings:
    • Keep existing property and view permissions. The current set of user permissions is copied along with the property, and the property will not inherit permissions from the destination account.
    • Replace existing property and view permissions with permissions of the destination account. The property will inherit permissions from the destination account.
  8. Click Move.
  9. Confirm data processing, then click Save.

@Eva;

Please do not refer users  to external resources not supported written or endorsed by Google, simply because we cannot verify the accuracy of those resources, and if erred, they would be no option to correct.

Thank you.

Hi @MosheTLV

My apologies, I was not aware of this policy. 

 

The only thing I could find about linking and posting materials is:

 

"Respect copyright and other relevant laws

Respect copyright and other applicable laws by not linking to or posting materials that you do not have proper authorization to share. Also remember to cite your sources if you’re going to use statistics, quote other publications, or make claims about an issue.

  • Any other post that violates one of the ground rules above
  • Posts that are inaccurate, obscene, defamatory, discriminatory, bigoted, threatening, or otherwise objectionable"

There was no mentioning of "external resources not supported written or endorsed by Google".

@Eva 

The  Community guidelines are shared among all products using this platform (AdWords, analytics, GMB, Partners).

AdWords has the most comprehensive and extensive help documentation, available  in all formats (text, videos,  help center).  So, in the AdWords section the practice is to rely only on resources by Google or endorsed by Google. And, as mentioned, the simple reason is that  because AdWords is a dynamic product and changes fast: if an error is found, Google can fix the content  for future users who might search  about / show  interest  in the content.

I hope this clarifies the reasoning behind this practice.
