Google Analytics’ property ID is the identifier associated with your account and used by Google Analytics to collect the data. You can add your account to your Onescreener site to see who is visiting, from where they are visiting and when. Reviewing this data can help you make more informed marketing and branding decisions.

In order to see the information, you must enter your Google Analytics Tracking ID to your Onescreener account/ site. Here's how:

Part one: Using an existing Google Analytics account (skip to Part two if you do not already have an analytics account)

Part two: Creating a new Google Analytics account

NOTE: In accordance with website privacy policies, we highly suggest that you let your Onescreener visitors know that you are collecting and reviewing their data. You can do this by simply writing "This site uses Google Analytics to track your data" in the About section of your page.

Part one: Using an existing Google Analytics account
