Events are getting triggered by visitors who have been filtered by IP address

I have setup a filter to exclude our office traffic by IP address. The filter is pretty basic, Predefined -> Exclude -> Traffic from the IP addresses -> that are equal to -> Our office IP.

 

For the most part it seems to work except that if someone in the office triggers an event, that event is getting recorded. How do I set it up so events are also filtered out?

To the best of my knowledge, all hits for the filtered IP address should be excluded.

Are you able to possibly provide a link to one of the web pages that has the event(s) that are being triggered?

Thanks :-)

hi @Ken W,

 

setting up filter to exclude IP results in excluding all hits from that particular IP including events. Please share a screenshot of your filter setup for further assistance.

So no fix to this? We just have to accept that it's going to do that?
