Several custom events in a unique goal

Several custom events in a unique goal

Hi,

 

On my website I have 3 different forms for the same purpose.

Those forms requiered custom events to be tracked correctly so I created and set 3 differents custom events, one for each.

 

One of my objectives here is to compare the performances of each one, so I need the 3 customs events, and I created an optimizely goal for each.

 

However, I would like to group all the triggered events in one only optimizely goal, to get the performance of the full process.

 

Is it possible ?

 

The documentation does not mention the possibility :

https://help.optimizely.com/hc/en-us/articles/200039925

 

Thanks a lot

Re: Several custom events in a unique goal

Maybe I'm misunderstanding....

 

You want a goal that tracks any of the 3 events.

 

e.g.

Form 1's goal is bound to the button $('#form-1-submit')

Form 2's goal is bound to the button $('#form-2-submit')

Form 3's goal is bound to the button $('#form-3-submit')

 

But you also want another goal that simply tracks any of these 3 user interactions:

Form Any's goal is bound to the buttons $('#form-1-submit, #form-2-submit, #form-3-submit')

Hello and thank you for you reply.

 

This is exactly what I would do if I were using a clic event !

But I'm using a custom event (a javascript triggered event).

 

Custom event documentation

 

 

When I create a goal on a custom event, I don't see any wait to set several custom event to track.

 

I could try to separate event names with comas and see what happens, but this test-and-learn way of doing seems a little bit arbitrary to me...

After some research, it's not possible to set several track events on a unique goal.

 

I will create a 4th track event, triggered with the 3 others.
