Modify an event in Analytics
Effectively modifying an event in Google Analytics, especially when it’s based on another event, involves a structured and explanatory process. Here are the steps along with detailed explanations:
Step 1. Access Event Modification – To modify an event that was previously created in Google Analytics, primarily based on another event, follow these steps:
Step 2. Navigate to the Admin Section – Begin by opening Google Analytics and ensure you are logged in with the appropriate credentials.
Then, in the left-hand menu, select “Admin.” This will take you to the administrative settings of your Google Analytics account.
Step 3. Access Event Configuration – Within the Admin section, navigate to the “Event” section, which can typically be found on the left-hand side. Click on it to access the event settings.
Step 4. Create Event (if necessary) – If you are modifying an existing event, you can skip this step. However, if you need to create a new event as part of the modification process, click on “Create event” to start configuring the new event.
Step 5. Locate and Select the Event – In the “Custom events” table, find and click on the event that you wish to modify. This action will open the event’s configuration for editing.
Step 6. Edit Event Configuration – Once you are in the event configuration, position your cursor over the top-right corner of the Configuration table. An edit icon should appear.
Click on this edit icon to access the event’s configuration settings for modification.
Step 7. Modify or Add Conditions/Parameters – Within the event’s configuration, you can now make the necessary modifications. This might involve changing conditions, adding parameters, or adjusting any other event-specific settings to suit your requirements.
Step 8. Save Your Changes – After making the desired modifications to the event, be sure to click the “Save” button to confirm and save your changes.
