Importing data with the date as key

Hello everyone,

 

I am sure somebody has asked this before, but I can't find the answer by searching. I am trying to upload a daily budget number to GA as a custom metric, but because this figure is set per day I wanted to use Date as the key - but it doesn't appear in the list.

 

Has anybody in the community done anything similar?

 

Thank you,

Ben

Hey Ben ,

 

Create custom dimension for date in GA and upload the date respectively.

 

Steps to configured custom dimensions :

Admin -> Property -> Custom Definitions -> Custom dimension

Name : Date_Offline 

 

Data set setting :

Select the key : Date_Offline 

 

I hope this will helps you to solve you problem.

Hi Vasim,

 

I have tried this but I am not seeing any data in my report - how does GA know that Date_Offline is connected to the actual date? For example if I am looking at the last 7 days, how does GA know what data to show?

I'm also looking for this feature but cannot seem to find a solution. I'm trying to import the number of times a customer walks into our store on a particular date. We have records back for the past few months that I would like to import into Analytics.

Hi @Phil R,

 

I have not been able to get this working yet,if you do find a way to get your data connected it would be great to know!
