Goal funnels: required steps

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Within a goal funnel, is it possible to specify that all steps are required, rather than just the first one? We are seeing users in the final step, but missing out ones in between. So I'm wondering if there is a way to say all steps within the funnel are mandatory?

Hi Claire,

You can mark only the first step as required, it means that nobody can enter the funnel except through the page in step one. The Funnel Visualization report only includes goal completions that pass through the required step.

The pageviews between the required first step and the goal destination page don't have to occur to match the funnel. Hope this helps.
