The Events report is a pre-made detail report that shows how many times each event is triggered and how many users trigger each event on your website or app. By analyzing the events users trigger on your website or app, you can make improvements to the user experience and increase conversions.
Note: This article describes the default report. You can customize the report by applying filters or comparisons or by changing the dimensions, metrics, or charts. Learn more

Metrics in the report
|Metric||What it is||How it's populated|
|Event count||The number of times users triggered an event.||This metric is populated automatically.|
|Event count per user||The average number of events triggered per user.||This metric is populated automatically.|
The sum of all 'value' parameters supplied with an event. You can use this context-sensitive metric to capture data that's important to you (e.g., revenue, time, distance).
Event value differs from purchase revenue in that event value combines realized and unrealized values. Realized values come from purchase events, and unrealized values come from other events (e.g., a gem_referral event with an event value of 5.). Event value isn't currency converted.
Note: The "Event value" metric is not provided by default. In order to see this metric, an Administrator or Editor must customize the report to include the metric. Learn more
|Populate this metric by including the 'value' parameter with an event.|
The total revenue from purchases, in-app purchases, subscriptions, and ad revenue.
Total revenue = purchases + in-app purchases + subscriptions + ad revenue
Note: Only events about purchases, in-app purchases, subscriptions, and ad revenue can have total revenue. If you want to see the value assigned to other events, see the "Event value" metric instead.
|This metric is the sum of the purchase, in_app_purchase, app_store_subscription_renew, and app_store_subscription_convert events, as well as ad revenue, which is populated via the Google AdMob integration, Google Ad Manager integration, or by sending the ad_impression event from a third-party integration.|
The number of unique users (or user IDs) who triggered at least one event.
