Assistance Setting Events Value

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

How do I determine what the values should be for my events? I want to set up goal tracking and I think I need event value for that too. Right now my event categories are watching a video, clicking on a PDF, clicking a past webinar, clicking on a future webinar. Should each event have a value of 1?

Hi Lindsay,

The event value field is not required:

Hope this helps.

Thanks for this. I guess I just don't understand how the goals work. Let's say I want to set a goal of 10 click on a particular video in a month - where do I put that?
