How to merge 2 different product names? I have duplicates after renaming products in my store
I recently modified the names of some of the products in my shopify store, what i didn't realize is that it is going to impact google analytics stats. So now if i look at a product performance report i see duplicate entries. (conversions>ecommerce>product performance)
For example if i have a product called "product 1 (size 1.5)" and I changed the name of the variant from (size 1.5) to (size 1 1/2) i end up with 2 entries for "product 1 (size 1.5)" and "product 1 (size 1 1/2)", which are essentially the same product. Same can be true for renaming "product 1" to product 2", you will have 2 duplicate entries for essentially the same product.
I was wondering if there is any way to merge the 2 entries so i can see relevant product performance.

Unfortunately there isn't an easy way to modify your names once they are in GA, without having to delete your whole view and starting all over again. You could include some annotations in your GA reports to indicate that the name was changed.
