Piwik PRO custom dimension tag

The Piwik PRO custom dimension tag lets you track additional dimensions on your website. Before you set up the tag, you need to create a custom dimension in Analytics, and then assign its index number to the value. In most cases, the value is a variable created separately.

To set up the Piwik PRO custom dimension tag, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Tag Manager.
  2. Navigate to Tags.
  3. Click + Create new tag.
  4. Name the tag and select the Piwik PRO custom dimension tag.
  5. Add Index from the custom dimension set in Analytics and Value that may be a ready-made or custom variable.
  6. Piwik PRO custom dimension tag with the setup.

    Tip: To find an index for a custom dimension in Analytics (new) go to Menu > Analytics (new) > Settings > Custom dimensions.

    Tip: To find an index for a custom dimension in Analytics (classic) go to Menu > Analytics settings > Custom dimensions.

  7. In Advanced tag settings, set the tag type. By default, it’s set to be displayed to visitors who consent to Analytics, but you can change it to a different type.
  8. By default, the Respect visitor privacy is turned on. Leave it as is, if you want to respect visitors who set a do-not-track option in their browser.
  9. In Flight dates, set time during which you want to run the tag.
  10. In Tag triggers, click + New trigger or + Existing trigger to set up a trigger for your tag.
  11. Adjust trigger conditions.
  12. When you’re done, click Save for the trigger and click Save for the tag.
  13. Test your tag in debug mode.
  14. When you’re happy how the tag works, click Publish.

After some time, data will be collected and you will be able to see the event in the custom dimension report (Menu > Analytics (new) > Reports > Custom dimensions).
