Google Analytics & addthis_config values

    I want to set up share tracking in Google Analytics. I see the field on the Advanced tab for the ‘Google Analytics property ID’.

    But I want to use the Google Analytics _trackSocial method.

    If I just add my GA ID to that field will shares be tracked as normal events (Content > Events) or social events (Visitors > Social) in GA v5?

    If the former can I use the ‘addthis_config values’ field further down on the Advanced tab to add the ‘data_ga_social’ value?

    If so, do I simply add data_ga_social:true in there and fill in the property ID field above? Or do I add both values to this field? i.e.

    data_ga_property:'UA-xxxxxx-x',
    data_ga_social:true

    Thanks in advance.

    Support here seems to be lacking. Has anyone else had any experience using Google Analytics tracking in the AddThis plugin and can shed any light on the questions above? Thanks.

    support not avaible 🙂

    I manually load a script file with

    var addthis_config = {
            ui_click: true,
            data_ga_property: 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X',
            data_ga_social : true
         };

    that seems to work and show in Google Analytics. I was experimenting with ‘addthis_config values’ field with no luck.
