Now you can export your Funnel data to an SFTP server! Just choose SFTP when creating a new export.
Some users want column names that resemble the name they see in Funnel instead of a technical ID in BigQuery. There is now a new option in the Column names section that does just that.
It’s now possible to use less than and greater than operators in dimension rules. This is useful mostly for dates where one can now define two separate rulesets for data before and after some point in time.
We've added new ways to manage the results of your dimension rules. You might want to combine values from two dimensions, or extract parts of a dimension, then append a prefix, then make the whole thing lowercase, or replace certain characters in campaign names.
The Google Analytics Uploader now lets you select what metrics to upload as cost, impressions and clicks - including custom metrics defined by you.
For example, if you need to deduct tax from the original cost metric before uploading it, you could create a custom metric that does this and use the custom metric in your upload.
Funnel now has a dimension called Funnel Account id, which will contain the id of the Funnel account your viewing or exporting data from. This is can be seen for example in the URL of the Funnel app, e.g. app.funnel.io/#/account/<your_account_id>/dataexplorer/.
To make sorting easier, the Week number (ISO) dimension now contains a zero when needed, e.g. Week 01 to Week 53. This is especially helpful for users of our Google Data Studio connector who use week number filters in their reports.
The Google Analytics uploader has been improved to allow choosing a dimension to be used for Source and Medium, as was previously made possible with Campaign. This gives you the ability to set up more flexible uploads and reduce the number of rules needed.
For example, with affiliate ad platforms, you can now use the value from a native dimension as Source instead of manually adding specific rules for each affiliate. Uploading cost from DSPs is another great use case, where Site/Publisher/Placement dimensions can now be used as the Source value.
The Data Explorer now has the ability to show your data in its original currency. This is particularly useful if you're exporting the data and want to apply your own conversion rates after the export. To enable this, select "Original currency" in the Data Explorer's currency tab.
Metrics in dashboard widgets now come with icons that lets you know what their source is. This is especially useful if you have metrics that have the same name but originate from different types of data sources. Since reports are based on dashboards this means that metrics in reports also have these icons.
