Visitor ID object to Custom Dimension

Probably a noob question, but can I capture Visitor ID into a custom dimension? Or is this available in the segments tab? Thanks in advance.

Hi Daniel :-)
What are you referring to when you mention Visitor ID?
Are you referring to the GA Client ID via the tracking code,
or User ID which is a unique id setup and assigned by your system to enable you to track engagement across multiple devices/sessions

If I look in the debugger I can see an attribute called Visitor ID. I'm really interested in seeing one specific browsing behavior isolated to one user without anything revealing as in login ID etc.

Hi :-)
Sorry to be a pain, are you able to take a screen shot, as I'm only familiar with Client ID, and the User ID feature,

https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookies-user-id
so I'm really not sure what you are referring to
Or are you able to possibly give a url to the site, so as i can have a look via browser using the debugger
Thanks :-)

Hi,

You can set Visitor id.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13566874/how-to-obtain-google-analytics-visitor-unique-id

But its better to upgrade to Universal analytics if not done already.

and use the user id feature.
