Prefix filter

Hello,

 

I am trying to figure out a way to add a prefix in-front of my user IDs in GA or GTM. How is this possible?

 

For example if my user id is 12345 i would want it to be "A12345".

 

Please let me know.

 

Thank you

PFB the steps:

 

  1. Start storing the user id in custom dimension.
  2. Create a advanced filter in the view setting to append the value to it.
