analytics.track payload for GA

See original GitHub issue

I’m currently tracking events and have the GA plugin added, but I’m having trouble finding the payload values when browsing events within my GA dashboard. Looking at the GA plugin I’m seeing that it expects label, value, category in the payload (not any key:values we want). Is that correct? I’m somewhat new to the GA interface so I apologize in advance if the data is there and I’m just not finding it. My code looks like this:

analytics.track('chooseStackOption', {
  type: 'framework',
  option: 'next.js'

Good point. I will update the docs.

There is some additional work to be done with the GA plugin to support custom dimensions and stuff as well.

Right now those can all be handled with raw ‘ga’ calls in the code

Hey @slidenerd

The google analytics plugin uses the regular google analytic script

If you want to use google tag manager script instead you can use that plugin

Just depends on your setup.

I prefer the simpler “just google analytics” setup myself because I like keeping my js in my app instead of hidden in gtag manager tags
