Thank you. I'm specifically looking for assistance with Event Goals. I want to set an event goal of 144 video plays per month. I set up the event goal as outlined below, but where can I put in that 144 is my goal?

Category equals to = Video
Use the Event value as the goal value for the conversion = Yes (although I do not have event values set)

The conversions goals report shows that I have 161 video clicks and that is the "number of conversions to the goal." What is this measuring against - visits to the site?

144 is your values (forth parameter in the set up).

Hi,
I set the goal to look like this:

Cateogry = video
Value = 144

Now when I look at the Conversions > Goals Overview report I see my goal has a value of 161. What does that mean?
