Creating a filtered custom metric

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

I would like to create a new revenue metric that filters based on whether a custom variable's value  (using Google Analytics Classic) is a yes or a no. Want to get a revenue value that aggregates all the yes's .. 

 

BUT I seem to be stuck. in the GA dashboard I simply call the Custom Var Value ... I cannot do that in Data Studio. 

 

HELP!

Custom Variables are available as Dimensions in Data Studio with a GA datasource.  

 

Have you tried adding a filter and choosing your Custom Variable as the dimension to filter on?  That should allow you to filter for the values of the Custom Variable.
