Transitioning from Universal Analytics to Google Analytics 4
In October 2020 Google released a new version of analytics called Google Analytics 4 (GA4). GA4 is the new default analytics platform which replaces Universal Analytics (UA), effective July 1, 2023. In the meantime, you have the option to run both versions concurrently. It’s recommended to install GA4 immediately in order to start building history on the new platform. This workshop covers GA4 exclusively.
Prerequisites: This workshop will not cover Google Analytics account setup and installation, as the installation procedure varies depending on your website platform. Please seek out a YouTube video tutorial for your specific website platform or consult your webmaster for installation support. It is expected you will have your GA4 account setup and installed on your website prior to the workshop. No further experience required.
