Hi everyone,


I was trying to track a goal in GA everytime a user visits following page:

/test?bookingstep=CaseData (URL ends after that)


I tried following RegEx for goal tracking:



It seems as this is not delivering correct data and I can´t figure out where I made a mistake.

Anyone an idea how to put the RegEx correctly? 

Thank you for help.

Hi :-)
In what way do you feel the data incorrect?

Things to bare in mind. 

- have you made the match type of the goal Regular Expression (if using a funnel then the same chosen match type must be used for all funnel steps. Match types cannot be mixed throughout a funnel).
- A goal will only register a conversion once during the same session

- If you are using a funnel and the first step of the funnel is required, then only conversions that complete the first funnel step with show as a conversion in the funnel. No other goal reports will be affected by this.
