The OpenBack SDK can be used to track Goals. These can range from anything such as a user completing a signup process, to a user purchasing a product.
Every goal on the dashboard has six components:
Goal Code- This is a unique identifier for each goal.
Goal Name- A name to easily distinguish between each goal.
Goal Description- A short description of what the goal achieves.
Number of Steps- The number of steps required for the goal to be completed. For example, step 1 is a user viewing a product, step 2 is the user adding the product to their cart. Step 3 and goal completion is the user purchasing the product.
Conversion Window- The length of time after a notification is received that it can be attributed to a goal completion.
Default Goal Value- This sets how much the goal completion is worth.
