Average time on page ignores page interaction events
As far as I understood from
time spent on page when there no next page is detected
last event - start page time
I am sending
'Page Interaction' - 'Scroll '
events when user scroll on page.
Unfortunately, the average time on page is set to 0.
what am i missing?

Make sure that your scroll event is not set to non-interaction. As non-interaction events don’t effect bounce rate or time on site. So for example if user visits your site, perform scroll event after 1 min and leave, in case of non-interaction event time on page will be 0 and incase of interaction event it will be 1min.
