View and Test Events in New Real-Time Report

Real-Time Events reportview at full size

Events are a recent addition to the Real-Time reports.

Did get that event right, or did I forget an apostrophe?

With the addition of Events to the Real-Time reports, you can now easily check that your events are firing correctly.

And, of course, once you have determined that your events are working, you can use this report just to see the events that users have generated in the last 30 minutes.

It’s always interesting to see activity on your site as it happens, so the Real-Time Events report adds a new point of interest to Google Analytics.

For more on the Real-Time reports, see 5-Minute Inactivity Drop-Off for Real-Time Reports, 30 Minutes for Session.
