How to show Custom Dimensions in a table like Custom Variables?

Hi!

I'm migrating a web property from old Google Analytics (ga.js) to new Universal Analytics (analytics.js) and I'm trying to preserve existing functionality where possible.

 

Specifically, I want a table with Custom Dimensions in it, that closely mimics the "Custom Variables" page (Audience -> Custom -> Custom Variables).

 

There doesn't seem to be an equivalent view of Custom Dimensions, so I'm currently building a dashboard to try to match it.

 

The problem with this is that the Table widget only allows 2 metrics per row.... whereas the Custom Variables table has 9 metrics per row.

 

Is there a way I can create a table with more columns, or is there a view of the Custom Dimensions that I haven't discovered yet?

Try to create Custom Report (Customization tab). There you can select up to 5 dimensions.

Maximum Dimension Drilldowns you can add to a custom report: 5
Maximum Metrics that can be added to a custom report metric group: 10
