Do I need to create a different dimension for each experiment?

Do I need to create a different dimension for each experiment?

I have set up integration with google universal analytics for my first experiment. I've assigned dimension 1 for this experiment.  If I create a second experiment do I need to create and assign it its' own dimension? 

 

I'm thinking no since the custom dimension I gave a generic name and then optimized is sending the experiment name with the variant name to google Analytics. So presumable I could use the same dimension for a second experiment? 

 

Is this correct?

Hi SneakiestSnail,

 

 

Dimensions can be re-used so long as the experiments aren't running at the same time. If the experiments will be running within the same date ranges, please use separate dimensions for each experiment to ensure you don't have overlapping data for customers who are targeted to both experiments. 

 

I hope this clears things up? Do let me know if you have any other questions!

 

Best,

Amara
