Google Analytics Add-on: How to connect/disconnect sites

Updated on August 4th, 2022

Once your Google Analytics accounts are connected to Flywheel, you can easily connect or disconnect sites or accounts at any time.

Note

Currently, this Add-on supports Universal Analytics (UA) only. It will support Google Analytics 4 (GA4) in a future update, once Google releases a public-facing API. To make sure your site is set up with Universal Analytics, check out the Google help article here.
