Ecommerce Overview - Notification message - Any ideas?

Hello! I have noticed these two notifications on the top right on a few pages on my Google Analytics accounts, but not sure what has changed to make these appear. I was hoping someone could give some insight.

 

This report has been filtered to include only data where there are values for "Affiliation" dimension.

This report has been filtered to include only data where there are values for "Product" dimension.

 

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!!

Hi,

Worth cross checking the filters, are there any recent changes to the filters for this view?

There are few other posts in this forum around the same notifications, if there isn't any changes to filters then you can proceed with the data.

I've noticed similar notifications in my reports. And I think that this is some obvious message and doesn't change anything.

Same here. Does GA Enhanced Ecommerce now require affiliation and product data to flow through when using Adwords? Help?

Hi,

Is anyone seeing a drop in conversion associated with this issue? My GA Order #'s are further out from my actual orders so not sure if it is this issue (I am getting the same messages) or if something else is going on.

Any help will be appreciated.

I have a useful update. I spent 90 minutes on the phone yesterday with a Tag Specialist from Google. I was very pleased and, frankly, shocked, that they responded so well.

My issue was this - I had an apostrophe in a coupon code. Seriously!

I had a coupon code titled ' Holiday Sale '15 '. Because I used single quotes when using Enhanced Ecommerce, GA saw that coupon code was 'Holiday Sale '. Then GA read that extra 15' and it got confused with the rest of the GA tracking code.

Once I changed the coupon code name, the data started to flow again.

Another workaround is to go back into the enhanced ecommerce tracking code and use double-quotes ( " ) instead of single quotes. Here's a practical example:

<script>
//loads up ecommerce plugin google analytics
ga("require", "ecommerce");

//Below given code sends transaction information to google analytics
ga("ecommerce:addTransaction", {
"id": "1234", // Transaction ID. Required.
"affiliation": "Acme Clothing", // Affiliation or store name.
"revenue": "11.99", // Grand Total.
"shipping": "5", // Shipping.
"tax": "1.29" // Tax.
});


//Below given code sends item information to google analytics
// It should come as many times as many items there in cart
ga("ecommerce:addItem", {
"id": "1234", // Transaction ID. Required.
"name": "Fluffy Pink Bunnies", // Product name. Required.
"sku": "DD23444", // SKU/code.
"category": "Party Toys", // Category or variation.
"price": "11.99", // Unit price.
"quantity": "1" // Quantity.
});

//Finally, once you have configured all your ecommerce data , you send the data to Google Analytics using the ecommerce:send command
ga("ecommerce:send");


</script>

Let me know if you have any follow up questions. Happy to help!
