Toad allows you to create connections to your Google Analytics data. A connection in Toad allows you to access the Google Analytics accounts and data that are available to you from your Google user account.
If you have multiple Google user accounts, you can create a separate Google Analytics connection in Toad for each account. For an explanation of Google accounts, see the following: https://developers.google.com/analytics/resources/concepts/gaConceptsAccounts
After creating a connection, see About Google Analytics Data Sources for more information about working with this data source.
Note: This feature is available in the Toad Data Point Professional Edition only.
When you create a Google Analytics connection in Toad, you log in to Google using your Google account. During the connection creation process, you also grant Toad access to the Google Analytics data accessible from that Google account.
Toad provides you with an interface to the Google log-in and authorization pages and displays these pages within the Create New Connection (and Connection Properties) dialog. The Google pages displayed are independent of Toad. The log-in process is the same as you normally encounter with your other Web-based Google log-in procedures. The only difference is that by creating a connection in Toad, you are giving Toad permission to access your Google Analytics data. This is accomplished when you click Accept in the Google authorization page.
To create a Google Analytics connection
Enter the credentials (email address and password) for your Google account and click Sign in.
Note: If you have multiple Google accounts and have previously logged in to Google (or connected through Toad), the Google log-in page may display the last Google account used. To specify a different Google account for the new connection, use the Google links/menu to select another account.
In the Google authorization page that displays, click Accept to allow Toad access to your Google Analytics data. Toad then attempts to establish a connection to Google Analytics. If the connection is successful, the Create New Connection dialog closes.
If you encounter an error message when attempting to connect using your Google Analytics connection, Toad's authorization (access) to the Google account for that connection may have been lost. Use the following procedure to re-establish authorization for the connection.
You can also use this procedure to specify a different Google log-in account for a connection.
