Common Problems with Google Analytics on Zapier

Error: Selected dimensions and metrics cannot be queried together.

Google Analytics does not allow some combinations of dimensions and metrics to be queried at the same time. To see which ones can be queried together, use Google's Dimensions & Metrics Explorer page:

Update Goal action is not recording a new conversion/event

The Update Goal Action is used to update the definition of a Goal, not record a conversion for it. Using Update Goal is equivalent to this page in Google Analytics:

To record a conversion, use the Create a Measurement Action and provide the same values for the category, action, label, and value fields (in this case Live and order.rebill_cancelled). Note that these values are case sensitive.
