Finding where Dimensions and Metrics are used in Reeport
For every data Widget you create, you have to define at least one Metric. Optionally, you will be able to use several Metrics and even use one or several Dimensions.

Learning what Dimensions are and how to use them
A Dimension is a way to look at the data through a certain angle. Depending on what’s available in your Data Source, a Dimension could be “Date”, “Country”, or “Device Type” for instance.
Every Dimension available is related to the data source that you are using in the widget. For example, if you are using a Google Analytics sources, you will see displayed only Goole Analytics Dimensions which come from this source.
Learning what Metrics are and how to use them
A Metric is a quantitative value. Depending on what’s available in your Data Source, a Metric could be “Spend”, “Revenue”, or “Transaction” for instance.
Every Metric available is related to the data source that you are using in the widget. For example, if you are using a Facebook sources, you will see displayed only Facebook' Metrics which come from this source.
We’ve built a few Cross-API Dimensions such as “Date”, “Week”, “Month”, and “Year” and make it dead easy for you to reconcile data from separate Data Sources, e.g., Google and Facebook.
