Tracking Registrations (email confirmation required)

I am using GTM to track website performance. I would like to set up a goal - registration on my website. After a registration, a user is not taken to any specific page, so destination goal does not work and it can be set up only as an event. 


Also, after a registration is complete a user has to confirm it by clicking on a link sent to him or her via email. It is not a problem for me to track event (goal) as a click on a registration button, but I need to be sure that a user confirms the registration. 


How do I approach this problem?

1) I am using GTM.

2) Goal has to be counted only after a user confirmed registration in his/her email.


I would appreciate your help very very much.

Hi Borys,

The general answer is – you need to set up a unique thank-you page after the user confirmed the registration and his email. Could be a simple URL parameter like page.html?mail=yes
