Changing Analytics Property Tracking ID

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭
# 1
Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I have been added to an existing analytics account for a site. The issue I have is that when I log in, it doesn't show me any details for the tracking ID that is being used on the site at the moment. 

 

My question is this: Am I able to change the tracking ID of a property, and if so, how?

 

I know I could just use the new tracking ID from a new property on the site but that would mean I would lose all previous data and potentially cause the same issue for the other person tracking the site.

 

Kind regards,

 

Mos

Hi Mos,

There is no way to change the ID of a property. It's a unique identifier that cannot be changed.
If you want to re-gain access to a property, please check the thread below:

Hope this helps.

Hi Arnold,

Thanks for that. I've emailed the person who was responsible for the current analytics and asked them to add me as a user. Hopefully that works.

Thanks again,

Mos
