Adding your tracking ID in iPaper
Once you have your tracking ID from GA4, it's time to add it to iPaper. You can enter it the settings either on the account level, or specific to each folder.
This guide shows you how to enter it on the account level, but doing so on the folder level is the same process.
On the account (or folder) level, right-click and select Edit default settings.
Click on the Integration section.
From the list of integrations shown in the left-hand, vertical menu, select Google Analytics.
Paste in your GA4 tracking ID in the Analytics tracking ID field.
iPaper sends a comprehensive list of events to Google Analytics, when integrating directly with either GA4 or Universal Analytics (UA). An indirect integration, in this case, means that the integration is set up via Google Tag Manager.
You can see the full list of events that iPaper sends, here:
We've also made a handy video on finding the iPaper events in your GA4 account, below:
How to set up custom definitions in GA4
Your iPaper account sends a number of event parameters to GA4 that aren't automatically parsed into its event reports. However, these can be configured as custom definitions for custom dimensions in GA4, meaning you can make use of the wealth of data they provide! 🚀
The process for configuring custom dimensions in GA4 needs to be followed for each custom definition you wish to include:
In Google Analytics, select the Admin button.
Next, select Custom definitions from the vertical menu on the left.
To create a new custom dimension, click the Create custom dimension button.
Give your custom dimension a name.
Define an event parameter by selecting one from the dropdown menu.
Remember to Save your work.
That's it – your custom definition is now set up. Your event parameters will begin to show in the GA4 Event Report after 24 hours.
