I have just installed Matomo and it all seems to be running fine and it’s registering visitors. For my project I have a number of goals I would like to register and I was wondering how to. I have created a goal and added the following code to see if it’s registered, but nothing seems to happen:
I have also tried which does show under “Direct Entry” but nothing is shown under “Goals”:
Do I understand the concept?
In first instance, you are tracking an event but missing some parameters.
For tracking Goal n# 1 you must have saved that goal-id inside your website tracker profile.
How do I save a goal-id inside my website tracker? When calling the function a flags shows up under “Direct Entry” but I’d expect it to also show up under “Goals”.
Turns out it works just fine the way I implemented it, but the dashboard doesn’t show it in realtime. A day later and the dashboard shows the goals just fine
Dashboards are made by Reports, reports are calculated in two ways. By visiting it (gets calculated on the fly by default configuration), or by cron-jobs. The second configuration is better tailored to huge websites, because you can plan to calculate report on each hour (for example)
Documentation and FAQs are explaining it very well.
