Finding Out a Button's CSS Selector

Why define goals using the selector?

Although defining goals using the button text is much easier, sometimes it is not feasible.

  1. If there isn't a text on the element you want to define as a goal
  2. If the same text is used by multiple different elements on the same page and you only want to select one.

In other cases, we advise non-technical users to define their goals using text.
