Can't see conversions in Real Time

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all, I was wondering if somebody could just advise me on a real time query in Google Analytics?

 

I can't see conversions when I have filters selected - 

 

For example - If I go to Real Time - Traffic Sources - Organic Traffic - - I see the traffic coming through

 

However, when I go to conversions - with organic traffic selected - I don't see conversions.

 

This happens with email traffic, cpc and referral traffic too!

 

My question is, should analytics be reporting these conversions to me or does it not show the conversions in real time when there is a filter?

 

Just to avoid any answers stating that there may be no conversions happening at all - If I go straight to conversions with no filters selected I'm seeing conversions happening in real time.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Alan
