Hi Guys,

I have an app where a user can select some number of widgets, and then act on those widgets. I'd like to be able to report on number of widgets people are acting on. Should I set an eVar with the number of widgets selected, and then fire off an event to track the action? Is the event necessary?

Thanks!

Hi,

You won't need an event to see data populated to en eVar.

But depending on what you need to see, you have a few different options.

1) Just a total of all widgets - use en event (eventX=8 for example, if 8 widgets was seen/used at the same time)

2) A row of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc... use the eVar as you said

You can of cause also do both

Hope this makes sense?

Yes, the s.tl() function are a link-tracking call (not incrementing page view) and s.t() is a page-view tracking call (incrementing the page view metric).

Thanks Løjmann. Can you confirm that if I set an eVar I I'll need to s.tl() or s.t() for it to be recorded?
