Hi,

I set up correctly events on tag manager and they appear in google analytics, but I can't set up them as goals. I tried to set the goal in analyitcs giving to category, action, etc, the same parameters as in tag manager, but it doesn't work. Anyone can help me, please?

Hi Lorenzo,

 

How do you know that it doesn't work? Did you compare the results in Real-Time reports?

I can see the event tracking on in real-time report, but I can not see the conversion associated with such event.

Could you show us your Category, Action, Label, Value settings in GTM and GA? Just take a screenshot if possible. Smiley Happy

 

Thanks,

Here GTM configuration: GTM

Here GA: GA

 

 

I tried to set up both in the same way. I left "value" box empty.

Hi again,

 

Unfortunately, you can't use variables in this field: http://prntscr.com/clf2ei

That's the reason. Change it to something specific or leave the label field blank in GA. Should work well.

 

Let me know how it goes.
