Is it possible to get a bar graph to show all types of goal, rather than just events?

Hi Smiley Happy

 

In our GA we have some event goals and destination goals.

 

Its been easy enough to set up a bar graph showing the event goals against the number of users, but i'm not able to my destination goal total in the same bar graph (because its grouped by event name). Is there a way to group by Goal name instead, so the destination goal can be included ?

 

Kind Regards,

 

Dan

Hi Dan,

 

Goal Completion Location might get you to something useful, that said there isn't a dynamic dimension that can be used in the same way as Event Label (or Category or Action); i.e. there is nothing akin to "Goal Name" .

 

You could do two weird things like set a custom dimension with a goal name for all of your completions - events and destination alike or fire events on destination goals as well.  

 

I would choose neither since we are just talking about expediting reporting.   If you are using GTM it would be simple enough to also fire an event or a custom dimension -- so I MIGHT do that.

 

You could also use the goal overview report instead - which can be scheduled or attempt this in data studio. 

 

Hope that helps.

 

Best,

Dan,

 

What is the location of the report?  GA Dashboard, Data Studio, etc?
