kahani-module and select event actions as the primary dimension. Event actions are usedto answer questions like:
- How many times has a chapter been viewed?

💡 Event labels are applied to all event actions.
The event label dimension is used to drill into view chapter content analytics and answer questions like:
- Which chapter is being viewed the most?
- What is the approximate drop-off chapter to chapter?
- What chapters that are getting the most CTA clicks?
In the below example, you can click into the
chapter-view to view which kahani chapters have been interacted with. The default explorer view is to show the “events” view which shows event counts, but you can toggle between “Site Usage” to see session duration or pages/session and “Ecommerce” view as well to view how many sessions viewed a chapter and then also transacted in the same session.
You can do the same event label drill down for all segments for all other event actions.
This segment is typically available by default in google analytics. All visitors who came to any page on your website, this will include users who did not interact with kahani. This is meant to show a benchmark around how your visitors typically behave and you can use this segment to compare again.
