Custom Goals with URL Destinations that contain #

Hi,

 

I've created a custom Goal in GA using Destination goal type with URL that contains # but it seems like no hit recorded. 

 

The URI of the link contains the following:

 

/checkout#review

/checkout#payment

 

with # indicating the steps the user takes. Anyone has explanation to this? Appreciate the support!

Hi @Khairil A

 

Google analytics does not track these types of urls out of the box.

If you are using just Google Analytics tracking code snippet

If you are using a tag for Universal Analytics in Google Tag Manager
