How to Promote a Property to an Account?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I read the post about deleting a property and that it won't be really deleted for 35 days.

 

I mistakenly used my website URL to create a property under an account. I then moved it to the trash can.

 

I tried to create a new account with a slightly different name but the same URL and it won't let me.

 

Do I really have to wait 35 days until I can use that URL in another account? Is there any way to get GA to let go of it sooner?

Hi Mickey :-)
Are you trying to create a new Account or a new Property within an existing Account?
Are you able to take a screen shot of what is happening when you try to and it doesnt work for you?

Thanks

Hi Bronwyn,

Thanks for responding. It was telling me the URL was not valid. It shows an http:// before the field. Many times people include that to remind you to include it in the address so I thought I should . That's when it broke. So I tried entering it without the http:// and everything is fine.
Thanks for your help.
