unable to delete users in Google Analytics

I have "User Management" permissions in one of my Google Analytics account, but I'm unable to delete other users.

Normally a third column to "delete" users would be there, but in this particular account it's not there. I didn't create the account, but I'm the only user with "User Management" permissions.

Anybody knows how to delete users in that case.

 

PS. I've tried to untick "Edit", "Collaborate" and "Read & Analyze", but no go Smiley Sad (these check boxes are ticked and blocked)

 

Thanks in advance

Do you have permission for manage users?

Hi Pablo,

Please check that you actually have got user-management permissions at account level (contrary to property and view level only).

Hello Pablo, it's really strange. I've assumed that you can't delete user who has created account however after small test I've realized that I don't have any problems of that kind in my accounts - I can easily delete users. 

 

I can't check your specific account so I would recommend to chat with google representative so he can check your account and give you feedback:

Thanks Christoph (webfield), you've pointed in the right direction.
I was looking at "View" level... I've checked it at "Account" level and it works

I have a weird issue, I can delete all the users I have given permission to read and analyse except one user. The "read & analyse' radio button is turned grey (inactive).

Can you guys help me trouble shoot the same?

I also got it to work by first accepting the new terms of use from Google and then the Delete option became visible.
