Unfortunately it’s not possible yet to create a custom report with the “Events” metric. The best alternative you can use for now is the “Hits” metric. Hits will count all the actions that match.

  • if your custom report has no filter applied, then “Hits” will count all actions.
  • But if your custom report has a filter defined, and the filter will filter for events only (and exclude other types of actions) then “Hits” will count the Event actions only. In this case “Hits” is close to the “Events” metric.
