Can I create a Goal based on a page TITLE?

I am reporting virtual pageviews from our desktop software.

 

I have them organized like:

Page:   /v/appname/category

PageTitle:  the "event"  

 

So:  Page:  /v/appname/category/     pagetitle=StartedLesson

 

But it looks like you can't use a PageTitle in a Goal, right?

Correct. Since it is desktop software -- guessing you can't easily change the title, you could use a Custom Advanced filter to append the Page Title to the Request URI so you end up with /v/appname/category/StartedLesson as an override URI. Now you can regex the goal completion as a destination.

Luckily, this is the TESTING phase. I haven't released this version into the wild.

So, it's a 1 minute change Smiley Happy
