Issue with paid search links

We noticed that our paid search traffic is not being properly recorded in Google Analytics.The utm parameters are being dropped from the page path and they are being recorded as "Other" instead of "Paid".

Any support provided would be much appreciated.

Can you provide more info on how exactly looks like your UTM parameters in you links?
To classify traffic as "Paid" utm_medium must be set to cpc, ppc or paidsearch.

If you have something other you should change your links or alternatively you can modify default channel grouping.
To do so go to Analytics Admin > Channel Settings >Channel Grouping
