Query String Stip preventing goal firing

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

i have a root domain - and a subdomain - each with the same GA code and referral exclusion.


GA is firing natively on the page (not GTM)


i have a goal set up in GA to fire when a user submits a form and reaches a 'thank-you' url. see the set up below...

i also have several filters set up and discovered that when i implement a filter to strip the url query string (see attached) the goal (mentioned above) does not fire.


I have not seen this before and looking for a reason why. thanks

Hi Jeff,


We can't see all of your goal URL.  Also you can strip query parameters in Admin>>View Settings without using a filter.
