I just started testing some of the features for a WordPress Google Analytics plugin that I’m working on when I discovered event tracking hadn’t been enabled for my account.

While trying to figure out if there was any way to get in to the event tracking beta, I discovered that you can access the Event Tracking report by typing in analytics/reporting/events as the URL.

This doesn’t work if you have more than one account as it defaults to the first account listed alphabetically. If, like me, you have analytics accounts for several different sites under your Google account, then you need to add get the id parameter from the query string to view the correct account.

To access Google Analytics Event Tracking reports in a multiple account setting:

  1. Go to the Dashboard page for the desired account.
  2. Find and copy the 7 numbers that make up the id in the query string (id=0000000).
  3. Replace the 0’s in the following url with your id https://www.google.com/analytics/reporting/events?id=0000000.

Done.
