We’re trying to set up goals in Google Analytics for events that are free, i.e. have no ticket price.

However, we want to assign a financial value in GA.

We have several different event types, each of which will have a different value.

Can we identify which course type is being booked so we can automatically assign those values in GA? The thank you URL looks like

Hi Phil,

Do you know what can be used to identify custom values using Google Analytics? The thank you page URL as it stands doesn’t include that information, so I wonder if Google Analytics can use a special URL parameter or a meta tag within the pages markup. If you can share a link to the GA documentation you’re following we can investigate further.

No, however what you can do is use conditionally add some on page JavaScript (more info here:

So for example, you add this to your functions file:

function custom_thank_you_page_goal_tracking($transaction) {
    if ( $transaction instanceof EE_Transaction ) {
        foreach ( $transaction->registrations() as $registration ) {
            if ( $registration instanceof EE_Registration ) {
                $event = $registration->event();
                if ( $event instanceof EE_Event ) {
                    $category = $event->first_event_category();
                    if ( $category instanceof EE_Term ) {
                        $category_id = $category->id();
                        if($category_id == 78) {
                            echo '<script>ga("send", "event", "[category]", "[action]", "[label]", [value]);</script>';

and if the event has category 78 only, it will add the script for Google Analytics to the page.
