Accounts – Google Big Query

For security reasons, Analytics Edge stores your account information on your computer, not in the workbooks. Accounts are stored using Reference names, and the queries use a Reference name to identify which account to use.

Before you can log into an account, you must enter a Reference name in the field provided, then click the Add Account button.

After your have logged in, the account credentials will be stored (encrypted) on your computer so you can refresh reports without having to login each time.

Multiple accounts can be stored, and you can change which account gets used by default. If your reports make multiple queries and always refer to the ‘Default account’, you can switch the default account to report on on different account.

Login Process

When you click the Sign in wiht Google button to add a new account, the wizard will change as below and a new browser window should open. Login to the Google account that you use for Big Query and grant all of the requested permissions.

When the login is completed, you can close the browser window and return to the wizard, which has changed as below. Change the suggested reference name if desired and click OK.
