Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
i have 15 steps involved in my goal process... uhhhhh is there anyway to add more steps?
if i omit any of the pages in the process, the goal process breaks and thus will not be counted...right?
so if i put step 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, thankyou.aspx
in my goals setup, and the users will eventually go to step 4, my goal is broken right?
i wonder if i put page 1 of the application and page 15 the final page of the application, if they still go through steps 2-14, is it going to register as a goal?
or is analytics looking for them to go from 1 to 15..?
Define Funnel (optional)
A funnel is a series of pages leading up to to the Goal URL. For example, the funnel *may* include steps in your checkout process that lead to the thank you page (goal).
[..]the funnels and 'Required step' that you've defined here only apply to the Funnel Visualization Report.
In other words: define the "confirmation / thank you" page after submittal of the application as the goal. The steps are only needed if you want to see how visitors navigate to reach the goal (and possibly abandon the funnel). I presume that marking the first step as required will determine which applicants are counted toward the goal.
it should work just fine right?
if they abandon then oh well, its not a goal...
ill try that and see how it works.
now, i could for instance, also put page 2, 5, 7, 9...etc..
in between to get a better visualization of the process, but not necessary right?
