Google Analytics Custom Variables: Remove ProductID variable

Sep 26, 2011 at 2:55 PM

I've added some custom variables to my Google Analytics which I can see are being sent through fine. However, I have noticed that a custom variable of ProductID is being prepended to my list of 5 custom variables and always takes up the first custom variable spot. This means that the custom variable I was expecting to be "Custom Variable 1" was instead "Custom Variable 2" and the last of custom variables was not picked up as Google Analytics only allows a maxmium of 5 variables.

The order of my custom variables is crucial as it has to correspond with analytics accounts for other platforms. Is there an easy way that I can remove/overwrite the ProductID custom variable or stop if from being added to my list of variables?

Probably the topic isn't really up to date but I'm facing the same problem as of now. Any progress on this?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
