I am hoping someone can help me. I would like to transfer an existing property to another account. Is this possible?

Hi Natalie,

Unfortunately it is not possible to transfer an existing property to another account.

Is there a work around? or will I lose all my data?

Unfortunately currently there is no workaround. For more details please check out this document:

You cannot migrate historical data from one account to another. Thus, if you set up an account for a property and then later want to move tracking to a separate account, you cannot currently migrate the data from the old account to the new account.

Are there plans for allowing a Property to be transferred to a different Account in the future?

Other than exporting a lot of reports, is there any way to make a local backup of my Google Analytics Data? I suppose downloading the Sessions would be the best approach?

Good news! It is now possible to move a property to another account. You can read more about this new feature here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6370521?hl=en You need edit rights on both accounts though.

I recently when to add Analytics to the website of a non profit I work with, and realized the tagging was already there. I have the tag id, but don't know which account it is associated with. Is there a way to find the Google Account that has access to the data for a specific tag? Then we could transfer it to the non profit's Google account?
