A custom success event captures the data of those visitors whose web behavior matches specific conditions that include a targeted click event. Each time that event triggers under those conditions counts as a custom success event. Within the data collection for a pixel, the custom success event groups and highlights the data that it captured. This structure eases meaningful reviews of a data collection. Custom success events help you gauge the success of a campaign that is based on how often the target event is triggered. You can build audiences from a custom success event to combine the data that you captured from your website with second- and third-party data for reach and insight.
