Can I edit Goal ID and Goal Sets?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

I'm setting up goals and would love to use the ones already created, but the goals' Sets are all 1 where I'd like them to be 1 and 2. Is there a way to go into the goals and edit them? Or do I need to turn them off and recreate them from scratch using Sets 2 and 3? 

I'm leaning toward recreating them, but wanted to ask here first. 

 

Thank you!

Hi @Troy V,

 

Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the goal id. Only options are creating a new goal or changing their definitions.

 

I hope this helps.

Regards

I know that you can't delete a goal. You can only turn it off or modify it.

If you are trying to get them in order, just number the names.

This doesn't help for the goals within the Conversions > Goals > Overview page. They are still in order by the ID and not by the name. Smiley Sad
