    Google Analytics does not support Admin for particular profile


    I have seen that added admin will have access to all profiles.

    Is this possible (technical) to block added admin to particular profile?

    As I understand from reading there is ONLY option to add to ALL accounts.

    Accounts and profiles are very different things in Analytics.

    Profiles are meant to be different setups of the same website.

    Accounts are meant to be different websites.

    If you're setting customer websites up as profiles rather than new accounts (which you can do without creating new logins), then you are doing it wrong, and it will lead to major issues down the road.

    Make the person a user instead of an admin. Then they will only have limited access to the specific account you allow them to see.

    You mean each website needs its own account? This is very time consuming. For each website I have to manage account and add profiles. Is this correct way? I assume one account will be manged by admin and each new website can be added as profile with users. In your example you demand for each website new account where will be placed new profiles with privileges...Is this correct?

    Can be profile transfered to new account by admin?

    Profiles cannot be transferred, and that is why they need their own account. As I said, you do not need to have multiple logins to have multiple accounts. You can set them up all under the same username and password you regularly use for Analytics, and switch between them just as you do the profiles (unless you are using a third-party software, then I'm not really sure).

    1. Is it usual to set each account for each client and all websites inside account of client should be inside ONE account or each website of client should be with separate account?

    2. Can be admin move existing profiles to separate accounts inside new account name?
    Quoted: Profiles cannot be transferred, and that is why they need their own account.
