Find a way to not end up with PII data in our tool
For example grab category, title, og:data, date, tags, ... from page
Or get custom dimensions set by developer
Allow custom dimensions to be send to our database
Make custom dimensions show up in our dashboard
Filter on custom dimensions
Talk with a customer who explained very well how they would use dimensions
As part of our Google Analytics installation we've set the following dimensions on our story pages, via variables provided by our CMS. This allows us to segment traffic based on the content itself. None of them tell us about the visitor themselves (we have GA set to anonymize visits). We'd like to continue to segment our content as we move away from Google Analytics.
I hope this helps to explain our use case. Thanks!
So you basically fill an amount of dimensions and in GA you can filter on those? Could you share a screenshot of GA where you use the filtering? That would be great! That way I can learn about the UI and what is currently working (well) for you (please hide sensitive numbers of course).
We need to find a way where customers can insert custom data without it being user IDs or any personal data. If you have any ideas on that, please let me know!
Funny enough, Google Analytics is not loading properly for me today. So it will be tough to get screenshots - but I'll point you to resources that explain what GA is doing
In the GA tracking script that I embed on to our site, I define variables from the story page to pass into each numbered slot (as I noted in the previous email).
Then if I want to view the results, like how well a category is performing, I can create a "Segment" referencing the dimension (like Author or Category). Its basically a filter that gets applied to the entire dashboard. As an example, I can say "category" contains "Every 30 Seconds", and I will only see data that filters to this condition. https://www.monsterinsights.com/how-to-create-google-analytics-advanced-segments/
There are other ways to do it in GA, it can get into the weeds a bit. Its part of the reason we are looking for a new solution. Its a complex tool and we want to make it easier for our team to find the data they need more quickly.
