Note: these four permissions can be applied singly or in combination.
|Manage Users||Can manage account users (add/delete users, assign any permissions). Does not include Edit or Collaborate. Can grant full permissions to any user, including themselves, for any account, property, or view for which they have this permission.|
Can perform administrative and report-related functions (e.g., add/edit/delete accounts, properties, views, filters, goals, Channel
Grouping, etc., but not manage users), and see report data.
Edit permission is required at the account level to create filters. Edit permission is required at the view level to apply filters.
Can create, edit, delete, and share personal assets. Can collaborate on shared assets. Includes Read & Analyze. Shared assets include:
Multi-Channel Funnels Settings
|Read & Analyze||Can see report and configuration data; can manipulate data within reports (e.g., filter a table, add a secondary dimension, create a segment); can create personal assets, and share them, and see shared assets. Cannot collaborate on shared assets.|
