In-Page Analytics & Javascript

Hello, 

I have been looking at our In-Page analytics and noticed that any area where a user would click that is set up with javascript does not get registered as a click on the in-page analytics. 

Why is this?

Is there a fix?

Is just not available?

Thanks!
Jess

Jessica,

Yes, it's know issue, link with javascript won't be tracked as part of In-Page Analytics.

Alternative is to use the Page navigation report, again if there is usage of bookmarking then it will create a confusion.

Permanent solution is use of Event tracking, if it's something critical to the business. provides accurate information on the usage of any particular link.
