Custom Dimension allows you to group your Accounts, Campaigns, or any elements of advertising channels that share a common property. For example: Product category, Location, Brand.
Say, you are an advertiser running different campaigns for different countries. Consequently, Country or Geo will be an important dimension for reporting. Most likely you would have included information about the country in campaign names. If you’d like to view reports grouped by country (as shown in the image below), you can create a custom dimension - Country, to group your campaigns accordingly.
