Create a New Analytics account

I manage several website all with Google Analytics enabled. When I try to create a new account, Google will not let me enter a New account name. Instead it gives my a dropdown list of all my previous accounts, so I am unable to create a new account.

Hi Thomas,

 

Any chance you've hit the cap? There is a 100 Account limit. 

 

Thanks,

Jen

Hi :-)
the last option in the drop down should be Create new account with how many out of 100 accounts you currently have in use

No, I only have about 10 accounts on Analytics. I just can’t crate a new account, When I click to start a new Analytics account, it only offers the dropdown list of the current acccounts for log-in.

Hi Thomas,

 

How are you trying to add the new Account?

 

I would recommend:

- Clicking on Admin (gear icon) located in the bottom left corner

- Then Clicking on the Account drop down located in the middle of the page (and not the Account drop down in the top left)

- The Create new account should be available at the bottom of the list.

 

I suspect you're trying to add a new Account from the top left drop down which is just for navigation between your Accounts/Properties/Views.

 

Cheers,

JD
