How to Add Users to Google My Business

To invite someone to manage your Google My Business account, you must be the owner of the account. You can simply add a new manager by signing in to your account, then selecting the location or location group you’d like to add the manager to from the menu on the top left.

For location groups, open your group, then go to “group settings”:

Click on “Manage Users” and then “Add Users”. Next, enter the email address of the person you’d like to invite to manage your account.

Once that person accepts the invitation, they will have managing capabilities, including being able to add and remove users and locations in the group you selected.

How to Add a User to Google Analytics

To invite someone to your Google Analytics account, you must be the Administrator of the account, whether at the account, property, or view level.

If you’re an administrator, you can add or change users on the level where you have that role. To delete users, you must at least be an administrator on the account level.

When you want to invite someone into Google Analytics, begin by signing in to your account. Next, click on Admin, and then on the Account, Property, or View permissions you’d like to access.

How to Add a User to Google Ads

To invite someone to access your Google Ads account, sign in to your Google account. In the upper right-hand corner, there will be a tools icon (a wrench). Click on this, and then click on “Setup”, then “Access and Security”.
