How to Find Custom Dimension Reports in Google Analytics

Are you having a hard time finding your Custom Dimension reports in Google Analytics? After you set up Custom Dimensions using MonsterInsights, you can find your data for the past month in your MonsterInsights reports in your WordPress dashboard. However, finding data for previous periods in Google Analytics is a little trickier. In this guide, we’ll show you how to find your Custom Dimension reports in Google Analytics.

How to Create a Custom Dimension Report

First you’ll need to log in to your Google Analytics account, and select the website you’d like to find your Custom Dimension reports in.

Now you’ll need to tell Google Analytics what to include in your report.

In this guide, we’ll create a report to show us the number of pageviews by author. We named our report “Pageviews by Author.”

Under Metric Groups, click the + add metric button. Type “pageviews” in the search field. Then click on the Pageviews metric under the Users heading.
