To create a Whatfix custom dimension, follow the steps as shown in the slideshow below.
The data that is collected may vary between Whatfix Analytics and Google Analytics. This is because Whatfix Analytics uses the India Standard Time (IST) GMT +5:30 timezone and your analytics must be configured to a different timezone. To see the same numbers, update the timezone in your Google Analytics account under Admin > View Settings > Time zone country or territory.
