In this knowledge base article, we’ll walk you through the steps to integrate Google Analytics 4 with Analytify.

Integrating Google Analytics 4 with Analytify

Step 1: Log into Your Google Analytics 4 Account

Once done, click on the next button.

Step 3: Property Setup

The next step is to configure your property settings. Here you need to enter the name of your website, the time zone, and other details. 

You also need to enable the Show Advanced Options checkbox if you want Analytify to be able to access your Google Analytics 4 data.

Next, click On the Toggle Button to reveal the advanced options and ensure you have enabled all the necessary permissions.

Once you enable the toggle button, you will see two options to create a property.

  1. Create both a Google Analytics 4 and a Universal Analytics property
  2. Create a Universal Analytics property only 

The first option will create a Universal Analytics and Google Analytics 4 property with the same tracking code—for instance, G-XXXXXXXX-X (Google analytics 4) and UA-XXXXXXX-X (Universal Analytics). 

The second option will create only a Universal Analytics property. We recommend using the first option to create both properties.
