We have begged and we have pleaded. Finally Google has caved and given what many web analytics users have been asking for; event tracking as goals.
Up to this point a lot of specific valuable actions could not be set as goals in Google Analytics, but just as an event with a value. It was only possible to use a pageview as a goal. In some cases it was possible to set things as goals, eventhough you didn't load a page, but created a virtual pageview. It wasn't pretty and didn't give you the best insights.
