The first step in a funnel is going to have a dynamic ending fragment. Examples:

To allow for such dynamism, I provided this url for step one:


My goals work but the funnel visualization report shows 0 for everything.

I know this problem is due to the regex in the funnel step because I copied this entire goal except I replaced




When I hardcoded /invite/puppy-party the funnel worked as expected.

Why is my funnel report not working with my original funnel step url parameter?

I found that the type of match needs to be set to Regular Expression even if you want the funnel URLs to be expressed as regex.
