Custom goals will require some extra code implemented to the tracked website, which is specified when you create a new goal from the dashboard.
A custom goal is mainly used for when you want to track a specific event that happens on your website, which can’t be tracked with the pageview method.
Some examples of where custom goals will shine are:
- Tracking clicks on external links
- Tracking more advanced form submissions
- Tracking clicks on specific parts of your pages
When this code will trigger inside of your page, the goal conversion will be triggered as well on our side.
