I try to use
https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/protocol/v1/email
to track email opens in GA
but according to http://www.lunametrics.com/blog/2013/06/17/email-tracking-google-analytics/ I need to add unique id to use GA for mail tracking.
Is there any way to genereate unique id in postageapp?

    If you need a unique ID in any part of your email, generate one in your application and supply it as a recipient-specific variable.

    When you supply the recipients list, you can also include personalization data. For example:

    {
       "recipients": {
          "[email blocked]" : {
             "ga_id": "082b5d8a-587c-4315-8f4d-4261832e6aa9"
          }
       }
     }
    

    Then in your template you'd just reference {{ga_id}} wherever you would like to use that ID.
