Goal not completing

This popular discussion was copied from the former Help Forum, answered by Zorin Radovancevic (RS).

 

Question: Hi, I have setup a Goal to count the number of people registering an account on our site (see Pic1). This a Destination goal for everyone who goes to the URL ^/account/thanks via ^/account/register (this has been set as required).

I know from a separate system that people have registered an account since I turned this on. And I know from the All Pages report that people are accessing these two pages (see Pic2 and Pic3) so I don't understand why by goal is registering no completions. Can anyone help?

Answer:  

Hi, begins with match does not support regex expressions which you have in goal destination and funnel steps using ^/ - so removing ^ will probably help or change Begins with to Regex matching.
