To get started with GameAnalytics, you will required to set up your Organization. This is a central place for managing your company, containing all your games and users (even multiple studios), and will function as a trusted environment for collaboration between your users.
Creating an Organization
At the signup stage, you are asked to create an Organization (using a name and unique identifier). If you were invited (and already signed up), then this is not required.
To begin, Give your Organization a name which you find fits well, in the example below we have chosen the name GA Studio. After naming your organization, hit Save Changes to continue.
Once, you have completed your set-up of Studios and Games (As shown later in this article), they will sit under the organization which has been created. Each studio you create will have the Organization name next to it as shown below. You can see in the example below, that Test Studio belongs to the GA Studio Organization.
Managing an Organization
In order to manage your Organization on GameAnalytics, from the home screen select the three dots button next a studio/organization name. This will bring up the option of Organization Settings. Select this to get started!
Once you are in your Organization settings, you will be able to see all users who have any type of access to your organization, studios, or games. You can select to invite new users or alter existing users.
To invite a user to your Organization select the Invite User button at the top right of the screen.
You will then be able to invite a user either as an:
- Organization Owner: Can manage Dashboards, Explore Queries and Funnels, Access Studio/Game Settings, Create Additional Games, Manage Email Report Subscriptions, Invite users to an Organization, Game or Studio and view Organization API keys.
- Organization Admin: Can manage Dashboards, Explore Queries and Funnels, Access Studio/Game Settings, Create Additional Games, Manage Email Report Subscriptions and Invite users to a game or studio
- Organization Viewer: Can manage Dashboards, Explore Queries and Funnels, View game keys in settings for all games
When inviting a user to your Organization you can also select how often they would like to view email reports for all games in an organization. Once you have entered an email address and selected the invite options, hit the Send Invite button!
You may be wondering, how do I remove a user from my Organization? This is very simple. To start, on the Organization Users list press edit button next to a current users name.
You will be then be able to remove a user from your Organization using the Revoke Access Button.
You can also use this option to change a users role in your Organization.

To get started with tracking data with GameAnalytics it's an important first step Add a Studio and your Games, both of which can be done on the Account Overview page. It’s a simple and straightforward process, but we’ve broken this down for you here: How to add studios To add a studio, click on the blue ‘Add new studio’ button on the top right-hand corner of the account overview page.
Then enter your studio’s name and icon (the icon is optional, but we find it helps to add a logo here, especially if you have a large portfolio). Go ahead and hit ‘Create studio’, and wa-la, you’ve added your new studio to your account.
To add a game, press the button on the right of a studio name panel (the three little dots), and then choose ‘Add Game’. Here you can search for your game across different app stores, which will import metadata directly from the chosen store. Alternatively, you can add the game yourself, although this may take a bit longer.
Once you’ve found your game, you’ll then need to add one of our SDK’s to finish off integrating your game into our tool.
