What is GA4?

Google Analytics 4 (GA4) is the latest version of Google Analytics. GA4 provides a more advanced and comprehensive set of features for analyzing user behavior on websites.

It is important to note that GA4 is still in its early stages. GA4 may not have all the features and integrations of the older Universal Analytics platform. Consider using both UA and GA4 properties to get a comprehensive view of the website.

Request Access to GA4

Provide your Google Account (email address) and website information.

Additionally, there is a link on the WSU Analytics Settings page (Settings > Analytics > GA4 Analytics ID) on your website with a link to the form as well.
