SETUP CUSTOM DIMENSIONS

Custom Dimensions are used to track important data and they are sent with every hit in Google Analytics. By adding the Custom Dimensions, you will continue to be able to track more detailed information.

The 14 custom dimensions are:

  • Client (Platform)
  • App Version
  • Publication Title
  • Orientation
  • Section
  • Customer Title
  • User ID - Hit
  • User ID - User
  • User ID - Session
  • Source of User ID
  • Customer Data
  • Push Token
  • Client ID
  • Bundle ID

You are going to create 6 new custom dimensions. It is important to create them in the same order and with the same names as this guide to ensure the data quality.

The first Dimension is Client, which requires ‘User’ as Scope. It must be set to active. Press ‘Create’ (STEP 4) and you will be shown a code example. Simply ignore the code example and press ‘Done’ (STEP 5).
