Metrica

Yandex.Metrica is a web analytics tool that lets you view detailed statistics, receive recordings of actions done by users who visit your website, track your sources of traffic, and gauge the effectiveness of your online and real-life advertisements. See Help to learn more about Yandex.Metrica and all its features.

If you use Yandex.Metrica tracking tags, you can link them to your company in Yandex.Connect. This well let you manage access to tracking tags more effectively: you can assign the role of a Yandex.Metrica manager to one of your employees, issue access rights to new employees, and revoke them from the ones who no longer work at your company.

Attention. The ability to link Yandex.Metrica tracking tags to Yandex.Connect is still in the testing phase. If you encounter any errors, please contact us.

Link tracking tags

  1. Before setting up your tracking tag, make sure that:

    • You are the tag owner.
    • Tag access is issued to two or more users.
  2. Log in to Yandex.Metrica as the tag owner.

  3. Go to the settings page of the tag you wish to set up and open the Access tab.

  4. Click Activate in the right-hand block and follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

After you've set up your tag, all the outside users with access to the tag are automatically promoted to external employees. Your Yandex.Metrica manager will then become the new tag owner. However, you will still be able to edit the tag if you wish.

Designate a Yandex.Metrica manager

The Yandex.Metrica manager is an employee who owns all your company's tracking tags. The Yandex.Metrica manager grants access to tracking tags to other employees. Only the Yandex.Metrica manager can remove tags linked to your company.
