Hi Guys, 

 

Relatively new to GA but wanting to create a custom dimension then modify the tracking code. Will i lose any data when i do this? or is it just an addition?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mel,

 

Any custom dimensions you create will be additions to all the standard data collected by GA, you won;t remove any data by adding a custom dimension.

 

Hope that helps,

Ben
