How can I delete duplicate unused event category from Googel Analytics Behaviour->Events->Top Events

Hi,

 

I added some event category to Behaviour->Events->Top Events. But two categories are same name but spelling mistake. I want to delete one category from Behaviour->Events->Top Events. Is it possible to delete one event category from Google Analytics? If yes, how can I delete this duplicate unused category?

 

With Thanks

Hi Martin,

Once the data is processed, it's there for all eternity Smiley Happy Unless of course you delete the property or account. (Don't do that.)

If you've corrected the misspelling in your code then you are all set.

Best,

Theo,

Does this also apply to event labels? If there are essentially two of the same labels (but one of the words has an uppercase and the other has a lowercase letter), can they be merged or can one of them be deleted?

Hi Jim,

 

They are separate rows of data from now until the end of the world. Smiley Happy

 

You can correct this by fixing your code or applying a lowercase filter to the event label field.  This will fix the issue MOVING FORWARD.

 

As with all other filters. test it first in your testing view. Smiley Happy
