Google is in the process of upgrading Google Analytics to a new platform called Universal Analytics. The new platform introduces a set of features that change the way data is collected and organized in your Google Analytics account.
We have updated UGAL with support for the new Universal Analytics, here is a 2 step guide on how to update your website so that it takes advantage of the new features.
1. Upgrade your Analytics account
This is done with Google and it takes between 24 and 48 hours to complete. Google has published an upgrade guide explaining the process. You need to follow only step 1 of the guide, which is asking Google to transfer your account to the new system.
2. Update your website settings
Once your Google Analytics account is upgraded to Universal Analytics, you will need to update your website settings so that UGAL knows to use the new tracking code for your website. From the "Settings" tab of your website, click the "Google Services" link.
Select "Universal Analytics" for the Analytics version and leave your tracking code unchanged. Your website will immediately send data to Universal Analytics.
