GA Funnel Visualization Issue via non-URL elements

Hi,

 

how do I go about setting up a funnel leading up to a goal I defined when all the elements leading to that goal (demo request) are buttons? Except for the homepage there is not one single other page leading up to that goal. There are however three different buttons leading to the demo request page.

 

Is this an event tracking issue? After my developer installs in the event tracking code is it pretty much like adding pages with unique URLs to create the funnel visualization?

 

Thanks :-)

Goal funnel is based on Destination goal type, that is, when URLs are defined in the goal. Only GA Premium supports funnel based on events and/or URLs.

A way to mitigate this is to create a segment and use Sequences (under Advanced) to define steps using the operators *is followed by* or *is immediately followed by*. It's not the same as a funnel, but it may help all the same.
