Account Access

A colleague in my organisation set up GA many moons ago. I have access through a team account but have limitations of being able to set up filter etc but with adequate permissions to add views and so on.


Is there any way for the colleague who set up the account to transfer it to another person/email address/account in order that I become the main account admin? I've searched high and low and can't find a definitive response.

Hi @Elaine F,


Absolutely, they can add anyone else as the admin and then remove themselves or stay on the account, too. 


Google Analytics add/remove/edit users.


If you need further assistance, please just let us know.


Kind Regards,
