To show the currently logged-in user name in Google Analytics, you would need to implement User ID tracking. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Set up User ID tracking in your Google Analytics account by following these steps: a. Sign in to your Google Analytics account. b. Go to the Admin settings. c. In the "Property" column, click on "Tracking Info" and select "User-ID". d. Enable User-ID tracking and follow the instructions to set it up on your website.
  2. Once User ID tracking is set up, you can pass the logged-in user name as the User ID when sending tracking data to Google Analytics. This can be done using a JavaScript code snippet or through your analytics implementation tool.
  3. When a user logs in to your website or application, you need to capture their username and pass it as the User ID in the Google Analytics tracking code.

Example JavaScript code:

// Assuming you have a variable named "loggedInUserName" holding the currently logged-in user's name
ga('set', 'userId', loggedInUserName);

  1. Make sure to send this User ID with each relevant tracking event, such as page views, conversions, or custom events. The User ID will then be associated with the respective user's session and actions.
  2. Once you have set up User ID tracking and implemented the necessary code, you can create custom reports or segments in Google Analytics to analyze user behavior specific to each logged-in user.

Note: Ensure compliance with privacy laws and regulations when implementing User ID tracking, especially if you collect personally identifiable information.
