Goals with multiple steps(events)

I want to create a goal that is tracked when a user completed 2 or more GTM events. Is this possible? From what I can tell, you can only do multi-step goals using the funnels feature. That feature doesn't provide the flexibility that I'm looking for. Thoughts?

Hi @Kellen L,

 

Unfortunately, it is not possible to define an event sequence as a goal in Google Analytics currently. 

 

You can create a sequence segments to include the events that you want to see as a goal. The number of sessions in your report will give you the goal completions and you divide it by total sessions to calculate the conversion rate.

 

Alternatively, you can send the event when user performs particular activities on your website and define a goal based on this event but you need some coding skills to achieve this.

 

I hope this helps.

Regards
