Goals Not Working! Please help!

I'm trying to get goal tracking setup as my company has started using the GA campaign options for our clickable ads. We need to see how effective they are. Our goal is a click-though event to our application page.

 

The event code is here: <a class="btn" href=" https://loans.websterfirst.com/" onclick="ga('send', 'event', 'Apply Now Consumer Loans', 'Click : Apply Now : Auto Loans', 'home/products/lending/auto');" target="_blank">Apply Now &gt;</a>

 

I can see the events showing up so I know this code is working and events are being recorded, but it is not showing up in our goals report or as a goal in the campaign. Here is what I put in for the goal:

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a delay for goals showing up?

You can verify if your goals are counted in Real-Time > Conversions report.

I do see it there, but not in the goals under the Campaign report. Maybe there is a delay?

Allow minimum 4 hours for GA configurations to be effective.

I can see goals completion in reports after 10 minutes.

Check "Conversions > All Goals" or "Acquisition > All traffic > Channels" and choose "All Goals".
