Registration goal - tracking dynamic URLs

[ Edited ]

Hi All,


I'm looking to track users that have successfully registered on my website.   The finished URL looks something like the below...  but it includes uniques ids for each user in the URL string.


Here's my attempt  which doesn't seem to work...   \/applyforaccount.php\?verify=.{32}&verid=.{7}&email=y


I'm unsure if I even need to use regular expression or not? 


Many thanks,

Hi Adam,

You can set it up like Begins with: /applyforaccount.php if that part is common for all URLs and the other parameters do not matter in the goal completion. Let me know if you have questions.

Hi Arnold,

Thanks for the reply! /applyforaccount.php is registration page, but I wanted to track completed registrations.

\/applyforaccount.php\?verify=.{32}&verid=.{7}\&email=y seems to be working... I'll see if it kicks back any results in a few days Smiley Happy
