Filter Access

An individual who no longer works for my company is the only person who has the full permissions at the account level. This person will not answer phone calls or emails. The rest of the company has full permissions at the property and view level.  This is an issue because we would like to filter out the internal traffic from our advertising agency, but we are unable to create new filters with our current permissions. Is there anything we can do besides taking legal action to remove this person from our account?

Hi Kelly,

First, if a company email was used, I would see if someone could gain access to that email - from there you can change all the access you would need.

You might give the process outlined here a shot. Given that your company can likely, easily prove ownership, there really shouldn't be an issue in re-gaining full control.
