Note: Google Analytics 4 may take up to 48 hours to process the data and make it available in the user properties selection dropdown, and for values to show up in reports.
4. Create User-Scoped Custom Dimensions
In your Google Analytics account, navigate to the Custom Definitions configuration in Admin and create custom dimensions for each attribute you would like to include in your reports.
Custom definition limits & caveats: Google Analytics 4 allows customers to enable up to 25 user scoped custom dimensions. Analytics 360 customers can enable up to 100 custom dimensions. Google also limits the number of rows returned for high-cardinality dimensions. In order to avoid exceeding your quota, we recommend avoiding attributes with high-cardinality and only mapping attributes that you find most valuable in your reporting and analysis.
