Custom Dimension - Session Level

Hello,

I do need help regarding the custom dimensions. Initially, I use to track product pages, category pages and my different payment methods with custom variables.

After implementing google universal analytics, I am facing an issue. Not able to track anything. Please help me out.

ga('create', 'UA-1111111-1', 'xyz.co.uk');
                              ga('set', 'dimension2', 'abc'); // Product Pages
                        ga('send', 'pageview');

ga('create', 'UA-1111111-1', 'xyz.co.uk');
                              ga('set', 'dimension1', 'xyz'); // Category Pages
                        ga('send', 'pageview');

I do wish to track category pages, product pages and my payment methods like (COD, BT,CC) etc.

Please do help me out.

Thanks

Percy

Hi Percy,

First of all, have you set up the custom dimensions within Google Analytics (admin > custom definitions (under property) > custom dimensions)?

Once you've done this, you then need to reformat the code to send the data:

(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
  (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
  m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
  })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

ga('create', 'UA-1111111-1', 'xyz.co.uk');
ga('send', 'pageview', {
  'dimension1': 'Category page here',
  'dimension2': 'Product page here',
  'dimension2': 'Payment method here',
});

Open in new window


You've used the 'set' method which updates the value associated with a given field. However, because you haven't sent it using the 'send' method there's nothing to set. What this above code does is set the tracker and sends dimension1, dimension2 and dimension3 to GA.

Hope this helps.
