How to set goal when dynamic parameters are passed in URL

Hi there, we have two pages where I've set up goals but they're not showing any conversions, even though the tracking is confirmed to be working on the pages.

 

Here are the pages including the parameters:

www.101financial.com/webcast/Confirmation.aspx?s=1&inf_custom_webinardate=12/12/2015&inf_custom_webi... pm&inf_field_Email=test20@test.com&inf_field_firstname=Leadsource Test20

 

and

 

www.101financial.com/webcast/Share.aspx?contactId=123435&inf_contact_key=d33fd3decf936c9557eaca81624...

 

I have set the goals using the "Begins With" option and then put /webcast/Confirmation.aspx?  and /webcast/Share.aspx?

which worked for a previous area in our analytics, but not under this particular website which is www.101financial.com.

What am I missing? 

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Melanie,

When you verify your goal, are you getting a value greater than 0%?

Hi Arnold, the goal doesn't verify...our marketing person said not to add any value for this, is that causing the issue perhaps? Are goal conversions only always tied to financial value? Sorry if this is a dumb question, new to this and trying to help Marketing. I'm a web developer, not analytics person. Thanks!

Hi Melanie,

You don't need to specify a value to make the goals work.

Can you check in Behavior -> Site Content -> All Pages if the pages appear in the reports like /webcast/Confirmation.aspx?... ?
