How to get Google Analytics permissions for Madgicx

To view Google Analytics data via Madgicx, you need permissions to access the Google Analytics asset.

Google Analytics users must have a Google Account. If the person you add already uses a Google product, such as Gmail they already have a Google Account. 

Permissions required

You will need to be either an Admin, Editor, or Analyst to share the data with your Madgicx account. 

If you don’t have one of these permissions then you need to ask the relevant admin on your team.

How admins add new users

For an admin to grant you access to a Google Analytics asset they need to:

  1. Head to Google Analytics
  2. Click Admin in the bottom-left corner (⚙️), and navigate to the “Account” column that appears
  3. Click “Account Access Management”
  4. In the “Account permissions” list that appears, click “+” in the top right, then click “Add users”
  5. Enter the email address for the user's Google Account
  6. Select Admin, Editor, or Analyst permissions 
  7. Click “Add”

Here’s a handy message you can send to the account admin:

Hey, I need permissions to manage our Google Analytics asset. Could you spare a few minutes to help me out? (it’s quick and painless, promise 😉)

  1. Go to Google Analytics (you may need to re-enter your password)
  2. Head to “Admin” (⚙️) in the left-hand sidebar at the bottom
  3. Click on “Account Access Management” that appears in the “Account” column that appears
  4. Click on the “+” in the top right, then click “Add users”
  5. Enter in my email address
  6. Select my role as “Analyst” or above
  7. Click “Add”

That’s it! Appreciate if you could get this done ASAP 🙏 so I can start optimizing and maximizing our potential through Google ads 💪

When you have the permissions, head to Madgicx’s Settings and scroll down to the “Google Ad Accounts” section at the bottom of the page.

Note: you need to connect a Google Ads account to Madgicx before being able to connect a Google Analytics account.

Click on the “Add Google Account” button in the bottom right-hand corner of the page.

To connect your account, find it in the dropdown list and then click Save.
