Configure Spaces UA

The following steps are required when configuring Google Universal Analytics (UA) to work with Door Tablet.
  1. Create a UA Property
  2. Protect your UA Property with a filter
  3. Define Custom Dimensions and Custom Metrics
Note: If you like to use the Door Tablet Simulator repeat the above again (recommended).

Creating a UA Property
Open your Google Analytics account, and create a new property, as follows:

Click on Show advanced...

Fill the Business area:

Once you click on Create, Tracking ID will become available. Then, click on the back arrow to Navigate...

Protecting your Analytics Reports Data
You need to protect your data from other UA posts which may potentially harm your data collection irreversibly. It is simple to protect your data and Door Tablet ensures that it posts the correct data for you. To do so, create a filter by going to your profile, opening the UA Property and then Admin/Filters. You will then need to create New Filter.

  1. Give the filter a name
  2. Select the type to be Custom
  3. Use the "Include" option
  4. Select the Filter ID to be Application ID
  5. Type the filter pattern: doortablet
  6. Save your new filter

You may create other filters, for example a filter based on the IP address of the Door Tablet server as it it appears to Google. The best way to determine the IP, assuming it is a fixed one, is by using a browser on the server and accessing a site that tells you what your IP address is.

Define Custom Dimensions and Custom Metrics
You will now need to define Custom Dimensions and Metrics. To access these click on "Custom Definitions":

Create your definitions as follows, and in the order specified:

Create five custom dimension, in order:
  1. Reserved From (dt)
  2. Location (dt)
  3. Resource Name (dt)
  4. Resource Capacity (dt)
  5. Reservation Range (dt)


Now create Custom Metrics
  1. Minutes Available (dt)
  2. Minutes Used (dt)
  3. Resource Capacity (dt)
