Universal Analytics event tracking with user details

Hi,  Thankgavel K,

 

Can you be more specific of what "user details" you want to track? You would need to be careful that you are not collecting any kind of information that could personally identify any of your users - this goes against Google Analytics's terms of service.

 

You could always add more information into your GA event label (https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/events), for example, or enhance your data through custom dimensions (https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/custom-dims-mets). 

 

Read up on those and post back here if you have any other questions.
