Custom Dimensions & Metrics

Completely new to GA and setting it up for my employer for the first time. I'm having issues with clearly understanding custom dimensions and metrics. I thought I had a pretty good idea on dimensions by applying them to individual products, but then I saw in my page reports of each individual products page and figured that it would be collecting the same information. I'm just looking for examples of custom dimensions, metrics, and clarification on how to use them to gather additional information and overlapping different features in GA.

Hi Ashley,


I moved your post to the Google Analytics forum. Originally, it was in the Data Studio forum, so hopefully, you'll be more likely to get an answer here.


Best regards,
