some more feedback on custom events in tables like vistor log:

1) maybe on should change the separation-sign "-" between the parameters (category,
action, name and value) because it maybe confusing if you have
the same sign
a) within one of these 4 parameters
b) before the number in the value field if you are using a negative number
e.g. to track the unfolding and refolding of an element with the values
+1 for making the hidden content visible (unfolding)
-1 making the content unvisible again (refolding)

2) maybe one do not really need to show the blue url link in brackets at each event because the events shown should be on the same page as the "parent" page url shown above
=> to make this parent(page)-child(event)-structure more clear one could set the events with a larger margin at the left (intend).

3) a greater line width for the event symbol may make it look stronger and better noticeable

thanks for feedback

because it maybe confusing if you have the same sign

If you can show me screenshot showing that it is confusing, I'm interested

maybe one do not really need to show the blue url link in brackets at each event because the events shown should be on the same page as the "parent" page url shown above
Can you also show screenshot of what you mean?

PS: when you create Task / Feature requests, please put them in 2.X backlog as we try to keep current milestone for bugs only and very important feature requests we want to work on. thanks!

@hpvd

the larger margin on the left for event (child) is already nearly there:

  • after removing "(url)" from events and
  • pushing blue page url (parent) to the left please see attachment.
