Out with the old and in the new! Universal Analytics is going away.
In 2019 Google introduced Google Analytics 4 as an improvement “for unified reporting and analysis” of both app and web data. As part of this transition, Universal Analytics — Google Analytics 4’s predecessor will be deprecated or sunsetted on July 1, 2023. This means that Universal Analytics will not process any new hits and users will be required to switch to the new analytics tool, GA4.
What Does This Mean for Temple University sites.temple.edu/ Users?
After July 1st, 2023 your website will not process any analytics data unless you create a Google Analytics 4 property. If you use MonsterInsights WordPress, it is recommended that you install the latest version to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Tired of running out of media storage on your sites.temple.edu site? The Google Photos & Picasa Viewer plugin may be the solution for you. This plugin allows you to show photos stored in Google Photos on your site. No more local storage of photos chewing up space. If you would like to learn more about how to enable Google Photos integration please check out the Google Photos Integration support page.
On Thursday, April 20th from 6:00 to 7:00 PM, Temple University Sites will be switched to a new login screen. After the change is made, you will log in using the TUgateway screen. Please continue to use your AccessNet username and password to log in.
As usual, please open a TUHelp ticket if you have any questions or concerns regarding the new login system.
