Sending custom dimensions from segment.io to google analytics
I'm trying to send custom dimension using the segment.io integration to google analytics.
The connection itself is ok and I can see sessions and events but the custom dimensions are not working well.
Anybody else experienced these problems?
Re: Sending custom dimensions from segment.io to google analytics
I have not used that integration but it seems straightforward. Please not that a custom dimension that is not set before the pageview is sent must wait for the next hit (event, transaction, pageview) to be recorded. Make sure your custom dimensions are set up in Admin>>Property Settings>>Custom Definitions and the scope is set correctly. From there you should be able to use the Custom Dimensions is segments, as a secondary dimension and in custom reports and the API.
Hope that helps.
