Event categorizing

Hi all,

 

I am working on a new implementation  plan for a website. And my questions is as follows. 

Categorizing events with Event Category Action and Label are not enough. For example 

 

Homepage > Food > Burgers> Chicken Burger

 

How should I categorize them? Is there any possible way to do them without custom dimensions or if not,  how should I proceed with custom dimensions

 

Thanks guys

Hi Senem,

 

I would create a custom dimension "breadcrumbs" and then pass the contents of the breadcrumbs... so much easier to pass in with the pageview hit.

Best,
