How to Promote a Property to an Account?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Apologies in advance if this has been answered, but I cannot find the solution. On my analytics dashboard I have an account listed that has two unrelated website properties under it. I'd like to separate one of those properties and have it list as its own account instead of nested under another account.

 

In other words, the issue is it's "stuck" in a hierarchy where it doesn't belong...I uploaded a  screen shot below, but the image seems broken, so don't know if anyone can see it. I want to move "WebsiteMarketingPlan" out from under "MOWH WSMP."

Hey Bobette, how are things?

You will have to delete that Property and then create a new account/property for you to have things separated. It's not possible to "move" things from account to another, so here's waht you do to delete the property:

1. Select the Admin tab and navigate to the property you wish to delete.
2. In the PROPERTY column, click Property Settings.
3. Click Move property to Trash Can.
4. On the confirmation screen, click Move property to Trash Can.

 

Your property, and all the reporting views in the property, will be permanently deleted 35 days after being moved to the Trash Can.

 

Also, make sure you have the privileges to remove a property.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Thank you Leandro. Does this mean the historical data will be lost?

Yes ,Your property, and all the reporting views in the property, will be permanently deleted 35 days after being moved to the Trash Can.

If you wish to maintain that property historical data, just rename it to something like "_OldProperty", leave there, and create the new one and use the new UA on the website.
