Within the Secondary dimension, there are Goal Previous Step 1, Goal Previous Step 2 and Goal Previous Step 3. I couldn't figure out what they mean and how to make use of them.

This is to specify what had to have happened before the user entered the funnel. So for example, if you want to view a report on users who came from your Products page right before entering the funnel, you'd specify that page in Step 1. If the user took a series of steps to get to your funnel, you'd keep adding to it. It is truly a reverse funnel - referred to officially as a reverse goal path.
