Google Analytics 4
You now have the option to connect Google Analytics 4 directly via the configuration. It is recommended to activate both properies (Google Universal Analytics as well as Google Analytics 4) in parallel until the end of Google Universal Analytics, so that you can already collect a sufficient database in GA4 until July 2023.
