If Google analytics is installed on your site, Promolayer automatically sends data when a display is triggered or interacted with. No action needs to be taken to enable this.

event_category: In the case of A/B testing the event_category (Display name) will be {test name}-{display name}. For example if your A/B test is named "Uplift Validation" and your display is named "Blue Background" then it will be listed as Uplift Validation-Blue Background.

Example setup and usage: Checking if a display provided conversion uplift. In this case our example display has the name "My Display"

Create a custom audience

Set up the audience definition

First, give the audience a name. I've used "Users who viewed my popup"
Next, Add a new condition "Events -> View"

Add a condition

Click "Add parameter"

Enter event_category in the search field and click "Use arbitrary param"

Selecting a parameter

Enter your display's title, for this example we are using "My Display"

Enter display title

Using the above instructions, you've created an audience of users who have viewed the display called "My Display" and can now use it to generate reports and comparisons.

Create a new report in "Explore"
Select "Free form" from "Explore" on the left side menu.

Report setup

Click the [+] next to Dimensions and import "Audience Name"

Import audience name

Click the [+] next to Metrics and choose "Conversions"

Please note, Google Analytics is exceedingly slow in updating audiences and it may take a full day for the audience you created to appear in this report.
