Adding existing code to new account

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Our website was created nearly four years ago and code was placed in the website to track the analytics. However, as a new employee, no one knows which account was used to track the analytics. 

 

I have the account ID code placed on the site. Am I able to add this code to a new analytics account I create for myself to track our previous and current data?

Hi Chris,

You need access to the original account to see the data. Opening a new account would only get you a new tracker which would then need to be added.

If you do not have access there is a process for regaining access; check out this previous post here:

or you can go through a GACP.
