How do I update my Google Analytics account to version 4?

Updated

Log in to your Google Analytics Account and perform the following tasks:

To use the GA4 Setup Assistant, you need the Editor role for the account. Follow the instructions below to create your GA4 property. You can use this wizard regardless of if your website pages have a Google Analytics tag (gtag.js or analytics.js), a Google Ads tag (gtag.js), or a Google Tag Manager container.

  1. In Google Analytics, click  Admin (lower left).
  2. In the Account column, make sure that your desired account is selected. (If you only have one Google Analytics account, it's already selected.)
  3. In the Property column, select the Universal Analytics property that currently collects data for your website.
  4. In the Property column, click GA4 Setup Assistant. It's the first option in the Property column.
  5. Click Get started under I want to create a new Google Analytics 4 property.
  6. In the Create a new Google Analytics 4 property pop-up screen, click Create and Continue.
  7. On the Set up a Google tag page, select the Install a Google Tag option
  8. Click on the tab for Install Manually. Make a note of the gtag config  code, beginning with a G-. Should look something like this G-P35NFCSNWW. You will need to add this code to your Bibliopolis Control Panel, under Third Party > Google Analytics.
  9. Click the Done button in the upper right.

Next you need to install the Analytics G-tag ID on your website:

  1. Log in to your Bibliopolis Website Control Panel.
  2. Click on Google Analytics, under the Third Party Menu on the left.
  3.  Enter the new G-tag code that you created in to the Tracking/Measurement ID field, replacing your existing UA- code.
  4. Change the Analytics drop down menu to the gtag option
  5. Click the Save button

It may take up to 30 minutes for data to start being recorded in your Google Analytics account
