Universal Analytics custom dimensions not showing up

I'm trying to use custom dimensions to segment users between those who choose button A vs button B to get a certain destination. It might be redundant, but I'm also tracking the button clicks as events as well. This is my code in the html:

onclick="ga('set', 'dimension1', 'ClickedSecond'); ga('send', 'event', 'Custom_Navigation', 'click', 'Second', {'hitCallback': function() {document.location = 'second_page.html';}}); return false;" href="second_page.html"

Is there a reason why I can't see the results when I try to view these custom dimensions or is there just a time lag?

Answers:

Answer

There is a time lag (minimum 4, max 48 hours). The event is not redundant since you need an interaction call (event or pageview) to send a custom dimension.
