goal with destination & event

Want to set-up a goal with a final destination page and 4 in-between steps. 


Also, for couple of the steps want to  check if a specific event is triggered; meaning once user gets to the step does he/she trigger the event (like select a color); there are other things also to do in this step before user can press "next".


Prefer not to do a separate event funnel since then I can't see the next step after the event.


Is this possible?

Thanks lots in advance.

Hi, Indranil R,


It's not possible to create a Goal that's a hybrid of pages and events - it's one or the other.


You could try the Custom Funnel report ( that does allow you to create a report that's a mix of pages and events.


Hope you find something that helps.

Unfortunately "Custom Funnel" report is only available to Google Analytics 360 accounts.
But you could try to fire virtual pageviews instead of events.
It will give you possibility to use them in funnels.
To send virtual pageview trigger this javascript code when event occurs.
ga('send', 'pageview', '/virtual-page-path');

Yes, they will show up in the same way as "normal" pageviews.
