Details

You need to create a custom data source in the web UI first.

If you are uploading an R data frame, the function will prefix the column names with "ga:" for you if necessary.

After upload check the status by querying data sources using ga_custom_upload and examining the status field.

Currently only supports simple uploads (not resumable).
