I'd like to remove myself from an analytics profile without deleting the profile itself. It's an old client work profile, so there are other admins attached to it. I am just "user". I cannot find an option how to remove myself from it, any one a clue how to do that?

You need to get hold of one of the admins-- people with a higher level of access than yourself-- and ask them to remove you.

Disclaimer: I just made that up. But it's such a generic answer for anything involving different access levels that it's 99% likely to be right.

assuming you mean Google Analytics:

a User can be removed by any Administrator.
no Administrator may be removed without first being demoted to User role, so you can't remove yourself in Administrator role.
in Administrator role you can't demote yourself to the User role.

Does that mean that once you're an Administrator, you're in the realm of "You can leave any time you like, but you can never check out"? Would you have to close the account-- assuming the other admins are amenable-- and let them start over again without you?

Happily the OP did say he's "only" a User, so all it should take is a few choruses of "please release me" aimed at the nearest Administrator.

i believe you can fully transfer an account by inviting a new Administrator and having the new Administrator demote then remove you.
you don't want to close the account or you would lose historic analytics data.

I dont know who the admin now is, nor how to get hold of (whoever it is), what now?

Why cant i just remove myself as a user, whats the point me being at the mercy of an admin that might or might not respond to my request. If i have a few more clients like this my list is getting very long with not used analytics profile i dont care, clogging up the list of the profiles i do care...

so again what is the reason that i cannot remove myself? I am a held hostage... help! :)

the reason you cannot remove yourself is that the process is design precisely to prevent that from happening.
i believe you can see contact information for other admins if you go to the account users tab.

He means that he forgot he's a Moderator and can edit his typos even after the time limit for ordinary civilians has passed ;)

The cold-blooded version is: You can't remove yourself because you can't remove yourself. Only someone else can do it.

Is being on the profile a major inconvenience? Are you getting flooded with daily e-mail reports that you're not interested in and can't unsubscribe from? Is the domain taking up space on summary pages that you want to trim back to show only sites you are interested in?

i guess users can't see contact information - only admins.
