GARE: Updated Google Analytics Dimensions Drop-down

August 9, 2010

falling drop

If you've been following GARE since the beginning, you know that the very first thing GARE ever did was add additional dimensions to the segment (now dimension) drop-down and make these available for nearly every report. As time moved on, more and more segments were added, and the list began to get rather long and unwieldy.

Well, a few weeks back, the dimensions drop-down in Google Analytics underwent a fairly major overhaul. If you haven't seen it yet, it looks something like this:

new dimension drop-down

Clicking the above image will display a larger, more readable image.

I'd like to point out several excellent features in the new drop-down:

1. Categories:

dimension drop-down categories

Clicking on any of the categories will show you a column of all the available dimensions just for that category. This new level of organization also makes the dimension drop-down more tight and compact.

2. Descriptions:

dimension descriptions

This saves you from having to click a dimension and guess what it is based on the entries that show up. Segmenting is now much friendlier.

3. Searching:

searching for dimensions

Type a few letters in the dimension you want and you'll see only the dimensions that match those letters. Pretty slick.

Needless to say, when all of these great usability enhancements were added to the dimension drop-down, it broke GARE's additions to the list. Because the changes were so significant, it ended up requiring a complete rewrite of the dimension code.

Now GARE is even better! Take a look:

GARE enhanced dimension drop-down

No more ridiculously long list of dimensions! Now, not only does the modified list actually fit on the page, but it integrates fully into the new features of the dimension drop-down:

  1. Every added dimension is placed in appropriate categories. If there was no appropriate category, I created a new one.
  2. Nearly all of the dimensions also include descriptions automatically; I didn't have to write a single description.
  3. When you search for a dimension, the added dimensions are included if they match your search.

As you can see, now is a great time to get the latest version of GARE. Here's how you do it:

  1. Get Firefox
  2. Get Greasemonkey
  3. Get the GARE

I'd like to thank Olivier at Resoneo, who suggested making additional AdWords dimensions available outside of the AdWords reports, and everyone else who expressed a wish to see GARE fixed. I also want to officially welcome any comments regarding broken GARE features, new features you'd like to see in GARE, or anything else related to GARE or the newly-enhanced Google Analytics dimension drop-down.

LOVE THIS UPDATE! One complaint though, Billing City, Billing State, and Billing Country are not available. Would it be possible to add these to the script? Thanks!! Keep up the great work!

I added some code to the greasemonkey script to get the Bill Country/Region/City to show up properly, but unfortunately the reports are consistently reporting (not set) even though I know they are set. Arg. Any advice? Thanks!

@Eric: Sometime metrics are only available from very specific reports (such as the Transactions report), but it may be that these aren't made available from any report. I think the thought here is that the IP based city/state/country is going to be "good enough" for most analysis.

Hi there.

Thanks for taking the time to develop something so worthwhile.

I stumbled across your site as someone had suggested that this would show the actual number of goal conversions rather than just a percentage. I cannot see how to do this - does this script actually do this?

Thanks a lot

@Olly: When you have this script installed, anytime you look at a goal conversion tab, you should should see additional columns that give the actual number of conversions alongside the conversion rate percentages.

Hi,

I just downloaded GARE and tried to use it. Now, when I click anywhere inside Google Analytics I receive an error the dimension picker security certificate is invalid, and that it's only valid for opendns.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@David: There's an issue with the state popularity index feature that causes this error if you're using opendsn. I can't support two versions of the script, but I can tell you how to disable just state popularity:

1. Edit the script.
2. Find this line in the script (should be near the end of the script):
scriptElement.innerHTML='(function (open) { XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open = function(method, url, async, user, pass) { document.getElementById("currentURL").setAttribute("currenturl", location.protocol + "//" + location.hostname + url.replace(/&trows=[^&]*/,"") + "&trows=100"); document.getElementById("currentURL").setAttribute("scriptupdated", true); open.call(this, method, url, async, user, pass); }; })(XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open);';
3. Replace it with the following:
scriptElement.innerHTML='';

That should clear up the error you're seeing. It should also break the state popularity index, but everything else should work (unless you're using the new Google Analytics).

Will you be updating to make it compatible with the new GA version?

Hi Jeremy,

This is a nifty add-on. However, lately (last couple of weeks maybe) it doesn't work. When I click on the secondary dimension to show the drop down, I just get an error stating:

"There was an error fetching data for this view."

I turn off GARE, refresh and the standard GA secondary dimension menu shows fine. It's this way for every report.

Thanks.

Hi there.

Thanks for taking the time to develop something so worthwhile.

I stumbled across your site as someone had suggested that this would show the actual number of goal conversions rather than just a percentage. I cannot see how to do this - does this script actually do this?

Thanks a lot

January 20, 2011 10:14 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Olly: When you have this script installed, anytime you look at a goal conversion tab, you should should see additional columns that give the actual number of conversions alongside the conversion rate percentages.

Hi,

I just downloaded GARE and tried to use it. Now, when I click anywhere inside Google Analytics I receive an error the dimension picker security certificate is invalid, and that it's only valid for opendns.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@David: There's an issue with the state popularity index feature that causes this error if you're using opendsn. I can't support two versions of the script, but I can tell you how to disable just state popularity:

1. Edit the script.
2. Find this line in the script (should be near the end of the script):
scriptElement.innerHTML='(function (open) { XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open = function(method, url, async, user, pass) { document.getElementById("currentURL").setAttribute("currenturl", location.protocol + "//" + location.hostname + url.replace(/&trows=[^&]*/,"") + "&trows=100"); document.getElementById("currentURL").setAttribute("scriptupdated", true); open.call(this, method, url, async, user, pass); }; })(XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open);';
3. Replace it with the following:
scriptElement.innerHTML='';

That should clear up the error you're seeing. It should also break the state popularity index, but everything else should work (unless you're using the new Google Analytics).

That worked. Thanks. Great tool you have here. I like looking at different forms of data by hour of day of the week and prior to this it was a little bit of a chore with Excel.

Will you be updating to make it compatible with the new GA version?

April 8, 2011 1:20 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@David: I'm waiting until the new version is fully rolled out before updating so that I don't have to support two versions of the script.

Hi Jeremy,

This is a nifty add-on. However, lately (last couple of weeks maybe) it doesn't work. When I click on the secondary dimension to show the drop down, I just get an error stating:

"There was an error fetching data for this view."

I turn off GARE, refresh and the standard GA secondary dimension menu shows fine. It's this way for every report.

Thanks.

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@David: This is fixed with the latest version. Install the script again (click on the link in this post) and that should take care of it. If it's still now working, you may need to clear your cache and try re-installing again.

@David: There's an issue with the state popularity index feature that causes this error if you're using opendsn. I can't support two versions of the script, but I can tell you how to disable just state popularity:

1. Edit the script.
2. Find this line in the script (should be near the end of the script):
scriptElement.innerHTML='(function (open) { XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open = function(method, url, async, user, pass) { document.getElementById("currentURL").setAttribute("currenturl", location.protocol + "//" + location.hostname + url.replace(/&trows=[^&]*/,"") + "&trows=100"); document.getElementById("currentURL").setAttribute("scriptupdated", true); open.call(this, method, url, async, user, pass); }; })(XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open);';
3. Replace it with the following:
scriptElement.innerHTML='';

That should clear up the error you're seeing. It should also break the state popularity index, but everything else should work (unless you're using the new Google Analytics).

Will you be updating to make it compatible with the new GA version?

Hi Jeremy,

This is a nifty add-on. However, lately (last couple of weeks maybe) it doesn't work. When I click on the secondary dimension to show the drop down, I just get an error stating:

"There was an error fetching data for this view."

I turn off GARE, refresh and the standard GA secondary dimension menu shows fine. It's this way for every report.

Thanks.

@David: This is fixed with the latest version. Install the script again (click on the link in this post) and that should take care of it. If it's still now working, you may need to clear your cache and try re-installing again.

Hi there.

Thanks for taking the time to develop something so worthwhile.

I stumbled across your site as someone had suggested that this would show the actual number of goal conversions rather than just a percentage. I cannot see how to do this - does this script actually do this?

Thanks a lot

@David: This is fixed with the latest version. Install the script again (click on the link in this post) and that should take care of it. If it's still now working, you may need to clear your cache and try re-installing again.

Hi,

I was just curious if this will be updated to work with the new version of GA?

September 19, 2011 3:06 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@David: Getting this to work with the new version of GA will pretty much require an entire rewrite of the script. I expected that there will be an update, but it's still a ways out at this point.

LOVE THIS UPDATE! One complaint though, Billing City, Billing State, and Billing Country are not available. Would it be possible to add these to the script? Thanks!! Keep up the great work!

I added some code to the greasemonkey script to get the Bill Country/Region/City to show up properly, but unfortunately the reports are consistently reporting (not set) even though I know they are set. Arg. Any advice? Thanks!

@Eric: Sometime metrics are only available from very specific reports (such as the Transactions report), but it may be that these aren't made available from any report. I think the thought here is that the IP based city/state/country is going to be "good enough" for most analysis.

Hi there.

Thanks for taking the time to develop something so worthwhile.

I stumbled across your site as someone had suggested that this would show the actual number of goal conversions rather than just a percentage. I cannot see how to do this - does this script actually do this?

Thanks a lot

January 20, 2011 10:14 AM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@Olly: When you have this script installed, anytime you look at a goal conversion tab, you should should see additional columns that give the actual number of conversions alongside the conversion rate percentages.

Hi,

I just downloaded GARE and tried to use it. Now, when I click anywhere inside Google Analytics I receive an error the dimension picker security certificate is invalid, and that it's only valid for opendns.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@David: There's an issue with the state popularity index feature that causes this error if you're using opendsn. I can't support two versions of the script, but I can tell you how to disable just state popularity:

1. Edit the script.
2. Find this line in the script (should be near the end of the script):
scriptElement.innerHTML='(function (open) { XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open = function(method, url, async, user, pass) { document.getElementById("currentURL").setAttribute("currenturl", location.protocol + "//" + location.hostname + url.replace(/&trows=[^&]*/,"") + "&trows=100"); document.getElementById("currentURL").setAttribute("scriptupdated", true); open.call(this, method, url, async, user, pass); }; })(XMLHttpRequest.prototype.open);';
3. Replace it with the following:
scriptElement.innerHTML='';

That should clear up the error you're seeing. It should also break the state popularity index, but everything else should work (unless you're using the new Google Analytics).

That worked. Thanks. Great tool you have here. I like looking at different forms of data by hour of day of the week and prior to this it was a little bit of a chore with Excel.

Will you be updating to make it compatible with the new GA version?

April 8, 2011 1:20 PM

Jeremy Aube, Director of Engineering Author Profile Page said:

@David: I'm waiting until the new version is fully rolled out before updating so that I don't have to support two versions of the script.

Hi Jeremy,

This is a nifty add-on. However, lately (last couple of weeks maybe) it doesn't work. When I click on the secondary dimension to show the drop down, I just get an error stating:

"There was an error fetching data for this view."

I turn off GARE, refresh and the standard GA secondary dimension menu shows fine. It's this way for every report.

Thanks.
