Upgrade to Google Analytics 4
I recommend using the Upgrade Wizard to upgrade to Google Analytics 4.
If you’ve not already upgraded to Google Analytics 4, you’ll see a new thing on the Admin Section of your property, called Upgrade to GA4.
This wizard is going to create a new Google Analytics 4 property. It will not affect your existing Google Analytics, it’s just going to allow you to reuse some of the Universal Analytics (UA) property settings.
Once you click Upgrade to GA4, you will be asked to either create a new GA4 property or connect to the existing one. Assuming this is your first time upgrading, therefore, we’ll go with the Create new property option.
- Now Google Analytics tells you what to expect. Click Get Started.
IMPORTANT: Check this box:
Click Create Property.
Now it goes through a checklist. There are a few features that still are missing from the Analytics G4, and you may see some new options as well.
While I’m not absolutely certain that this has migrated your old data, don’t worry, it’s not lost. You can still access it through your Google Analytics.
Until Next Time, Happy Blogging!
