Ensure a Smooth Transition: Provide Access to Your Google Analytics Account

Please note, our team can complete the upgrade only if we have access to your Google analytics account. This might require a little bit of cooperation from both of us. We plan to update the first four groups to GA4 before the change-over occurs on July 1. We expect most of the other accounts will be completed as well, but it is not guaranteed. Giving the size and scope of project, this will be a 160-hour process. This is why we provided the DIY tutorial.
