Our site has a search suggestion dropdown when typing in the search field. We want to track usage of the search suggestions: text entered triggering the suggestions, suggestions clicked, and search submissions (when suggestions didn’t help).
We’ve set up events for search:
Actions: Show Suggestions, Select Suggestions, and Submit (when suggestions don’t help)
Name: [name of suggestion or submission]
It looks as though the Behavior -> Events report does a pretty good job with the metrics (number of matching events for each action and name). But the report is cumbersome, and it’s a bit clogged with unrelated events we’re tracking.
In trying to create a custom report to mimic the events / actions from the built-in report, I’m not finding any metrics that match. Visits is the closest for relative usage, but visits doesn’t match the total events shown in the built-in report. Is there a metric I’m missing that’d show total events for each action within a category filter?
