GA4: new metrics and dimensions available

ga4 available

If you missed the news, it was announced in 2020 that Google analytics’ latest version, GA4, would become the default when setting up a new property and invites users to upgrade from earlier versions. And a few weeks ago, we published a blog post highlighting a part of our roadmap: GA4. Here’s what was said : 


“We are working hard on adding new metrics and dimensions in the next few weeks. In addition, we will do everything we can to completely replace what is available in the current version of Google Analytics Universal, so you feel comfortable using this newer version (GA4).“


A promise made, a promise kept! 


We are incredibly proud to announce that the metrics and dimensions we committed to delivering are now live and available in-app!


Let’s go over what’s new and how you can take advantage of GA4 and its features in DashThis.

Custom metrics 


Great news for users who want complete flexibility with GA4: custom metrics are now supported in DashThis. GA4's Custom metrics are the ones you create yourselves depending on what you want to track, and they are used to collect and analyze data that GA doesn’t automatically track. To learn more about GA4's custom metrics, check out google's article on the subject right here.


What’s next?


We plan to add more metrics, dimensions (e.g. custom dimensions), and filters in the next few weeks and also we plan on rolling out an exciting feature: preset widgets and templates. We’ll make sure to update you along the way!


As always, your feedback is welcomed!


We know this integration is critical to many of our users, and we want to hear your feedback! If you have any comments or requests for metrics/dimensions, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team
