Custom Dimensions can now Split by a delimiter without using Regex

Written by Emma Bertilsson,

Many of our users have the need of split out fragments of a string, e.g. a campaign name, to create custom dimensions based on fragments of that string. This has been possible to do in Funnel for a long time, but knowledge of Regex has been required. 

We just released a new function called Split by that allows you to split out fragments from a string by simply typing the delimiter used in that string.

Below is an example of you want to split by '|' ignoring spaces and get the 2nd value with RegEx and with split by. Both of these operators will give you the same end result.

Campaign name: 
 EU | search | generic | roas

Result:
search
