  2. View the supported templated properties: Click the plus sign in the upper left corner to display the left side menu, if it is not already open, then open the Custom Event Properties category. This tutorial uses these properties:
    • Three User-Defined Property filters
    • The Raw Properties dimension
    • Three User-Defined Property dimensions Once you know the keys for the properties you would like to expand on, either select the templated name from the Custom Event Names in the Visualization or Data results, or set up a user-defined property.
  3. Set up a User-Defined Property. You may specify up to three total.
    1. Click the User-Defined Property 1 filter in the left side menu, then enter the key in the field after is equal to.
    2. Click the User-Defined Property 1 dimension in the left side menu. This displays the actual value for the property that you specified in the User-Defined Property 1 filter.
