How overwriting eVars (most recent, visit) affects events

Hello. Can someone help me verify eVar behovior?

 

Given these eVars and events:

  • eVar1 "Form Name" (allocation: Most Recent, expiration: Visit)
  • event1 "submit form" (counter, up is good)

if the following interaction are tracked in order during the same visit:

  1. Form Name (eVar1) = "my form" AND events = event1
  2. Form Name (eVar1) = "another form" AND events = event1

will the data show this?

  • eVar1 "my form" credited with 1 event "submit form"
  • eVar1 "another form" credited with 1 event "submit form"

or this?

  • eVar1 "another form" credited with 2 events "submit form"

@danielwalo - I'll second @amgup here. Both form values will be credited with 1 "submit form" event.

 

The reason for this is that the value present in the eVar at the time of the event is the value that gets credit for the event. So, in your first touch example, each time event1 fired, eVar1 was populated with a new value. Had the eVar1 value not been updated until after the event1 call, the previous value would have been credited with both even1 instances.
