How to view events in Google Analytics

Events are minute user interactions that happen without needing to load a webpage or a screen. Examples of these events are button clicks, downloads, interactive elements within a page, video plays etc.

Each event has a category (self defined), action (click, download), Label to identify it from other similar events and optionally a value (in cases of adding an item to cart). Based on how your events have been setup, most (if not all) of this data is now available to you in your Google Analytics dashboard.
