A high percentage of our clients tend to select different settings when sharing GA access with us, which introduces delays into the projects. Google does not grant access to all the settings we need including filters, views, audiences, adding goals, and a good number of the settings, if this is not done as described.
We do need “Manage Users” so that we can assign our team members correct access.
1. Login to your Google Analytics account. https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web

3. Under the first, left-hand column, Account, select your website.
4. Just under that, select User Management.
5. Click the blue plus button + in the top right corner
6. Enter my email firstname.lastname@example.org
7. Leave “Notify this user by email” checked.
8. Click all the checkboxes. Please note that Manage Users, Edit, Collaborate, Read & Analyze boxes should all be checked.
