Do I need to include the final goal step in the funnel?

Hi all,

 

Very basic question; I've got a goal defined, and have setup a Funnel, but am wondering if I need to include the final goal step as the end-item on the funnel? 

Eg if my confirmation URL is /thank-you (and this is the goal URL too), will I also need to include it in step 2 / 3 of the funnel?

 

Thanks!

Hi Matt,

You came to the right place!

If your confirmation URL equals /thank-you, you should only fill it in under goal details (destination). Funnel steps are used for pages prior to the thank you page. If your site only involves one extra step besides the thank you page, you should not use / fill in step 2 and 3.

Thanks,
Paul
