Hi, please see my SO question for details...

 

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35370668/how-to-hide-my-visits-using-custom-dimension

 

I can't filter out my sessions even after clicking my link which sends an event (and a custom dimension along with it); must be missing something obvious or something.

 

Thanks!

Hi Drew,

in order to exclude your own sessions in case you don't have a fixed IP range it's much easier to divert the Analytics opt-out browser add-on [1] for that use. You may switch it on or off if needed for testing.
