What is it?

A Goal represents a completed activity that you have defined as important to the success of your website or business. Goals can capture a number of completed actions, such as completing a form, downloading a brochure, or making a purchase. Goals and in particular Goal Conversion Rate are vital in measuring the effectiveness of your website and business objectives.

Sessions with Event is the count of the number of Sessions in which at least one defined Event is triggered. Marketing teams use this to evaluate the quality of the sessions on their website.
