So... Paul asked me to try to wrap my head around this new upgrade dealio and tell him what he needs to do.. But I just don't really get it. I understand that they want us to upgrade but like, should we just wait until it auto upgrades us?

https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/upgrade/

Has anyone dealt with this? Or can someone figure out what the heck I should do... Haha

Do you not have the option to start the transition to UGA in your admin settings?

In my experience,

- you start the transition manually
- Google switches you over when it feels like it (can be a week for example, or it can be faster than that)
- you fix your javascript code to use UGA (analytics.js) instead of old GA (ga.js) (it's not just a change of the filename; you can see the entire recommended script block when you've been switched)
- things work
 
Humans and their filthy friendship brings nothing but trouble. My only solace is this tiny ad:
