FAQs for Google Analytics (UA)

Does Coefficient support Google Analytics 4? Will there be any conflicts if we start using GA4 for our website data?

Yes! Google Analytics 4 is now supported by Coefficient. You must create a new connection to import data from your GA4 account because our team created a new connector specifically for it.

I am having trouble importing from Google Analytics (UA). What steps can I take to resolve this?

There are a few things you can try:

  1. Make sure that you are using your own Google Analytics (UA) account and not a shared/team account.
  2. Disable any ad blockers installed on your browser. This can interfere with any requests that Coefficient makes to Google Analytics (UA)during the import process.
  3. Confirm your permissions with Google Analytics (UA) with your Admin (Editor permissions are recommended).
