How to create and modify custom fields

Supermetrics custom fields allow you to transform your data before it appears in your reporting. This means you can correct, update, or normalize it quickly and efficiently. 

Learn more about the availability of the custom fields.

This guide will walk you through how to create a custom field.


Create a custom field

  1. Log in to the Supermetrics Team Site.
  2. Click Custom fields in the left-side menu.
  3. If this is your first custom field, click Start. If you've created fields before, click Create new custom field in the top right corner.
  4. Choose your data source, and whether your new field should be a dimension or a metric.
  5. Define your new field's ruleset with functions, lookups, and conditions. You don't need to add all of these to a field's definition — if your field only calls for one, only add one.
  6. In the Custom field name and Description fields, give your field a memorable name and description.
  7. Click Save changes.

Once you've saved it, your new custom field will be available for use in your reporting.

To add it to a query, open the Query Manager and select the data source you used to create the custom field. You'll find the custom field, with the name you gave it during the creation process, under the Select metrics dropdown. Use it like you would use any other field.

Modify a custom field

  1. Log in to the Team Site.
  2. Click Custom fields in the left-side menu.
  3. Find the field you'd like to modify. Click Modify.
  4. Make your adjustments, and then click Save changes in the top-right corner.
