@virginie To test events in Google Analytics, you can use the Real-Time Events report. This report allows you to see the events that are being tracked on your website in real-time, as they happen. You can use this report to verify that your event tracking code is working correctly and that the events are being recorded properly in Google Analytics.To access the Real-Time Events report, follow these steps:Sign in to your Google Analytics account and select the website that you want to test.Click on the "Real-Time" tab in the left sidebar.Click on the "Events" option in the submenu.On the Real-Time Events page, you should see a list of the events that are currently being tracked on your website.To test a specific event, you will need to trigger the event on your website while the Real-Time Events report is open. For example, if you have an event that is triggered when a user clicks a button on your website, you can click the button to trigger the event and see if it appears in the Real-Time Events report.If you don't see the event in the Real-Time Events report, there may be an issue with your event tracking code. In this case, you can use the Google Analytics Debugger Chrome extension to help troubleshoot the problem. This extension allows you to see detailed information about the events that are being tracked on your website, which can help you identify any issues with your event tracking code.Overall, the Real-Time Events report is a useful tool for testing and verifying that your event tracking code is working correctly in Google Analytics. By using this report, you can ensure that your events are being tracked properly and that the data in your Google Analytics account is accurate.

@virginie 1. Install Google Tag Manager: Set up a tag manager container in Google Tag Manager and link it to your website or mobile app.


  1. Create a new tag: Create a new tag of type “Google Analytics” in Google Tag Manager, and set up the parameters necessary to track your event.
  2. Set up a trigger: Create a trigger to activate your tag on the desired event.
  3. Publish your changes: Publish your changes and start tracking your events in Google Analytics.
  4. Check results in Google Analytics: Access Google Analytics, go to Real Time > Events and check the data collected from your event.
  5. Test other features: For further testing, determine if your specific event is populating as expected in other features, including your goal dashboard and segmented reports.
