In the xDB, a page event is something that can be triggered on your website by a visitor, or it can be triggered by the system. For example, when a visitor completes a campaign sign-up form and clicks submit, this triggers a goal conversion event and a campaign event.

In the Experience Profile, some page events are pre-configured to appear in the Latest Events or Events panels by default. You can use the Content Editor to change the page events that appear in the Experience Profile, and you can also configure the icons that are shown with page events.

This topic outlines how to:

  • Configure a page event to appear in the Experience Profile
