Hi @AEPAA  -

To capture the number of times the eVar was sent, you'd use the eVar Instances for that particular eVar as the metric.  Breaking out by the eVar would show you the clicks for each link. 

The table on the left is an example from sandbox demo data.  eVar 86 Navigation Method is the breakout dimension and Navigation Method Instances is the metric.  (If you use occurrences, you'd also get any values that persisted depending upon the eVar settings.)  


If you have activity map tracking, you can also use those dimensions & metrics as shown at right.  Here's more info on that.

You can also create segments for specific links...


Something like:


    eVar(link clicked) equals password change



Then you can create a table using either a specific event for your clicks, or the default "Custom Link Instances", etc; and then break this down by Day, or Week, or Month, etc... so you can see a trend of "password change" links specifically
