Custom event not showing

I am creating a custom event: called - “invitation accepted”. 

My goal is that this custom event will happen after the “Page is Viewed” on page_url = 123 event happens.

but the custom event is not shown at all when I  look at the user event stream.

I would expect it to be shown right after the Page iS View event.

 

  • I  do see the custom event added to my Events
  • I  can choose this custom event when creating a segmentation chart, but when I  do that the chart is shown empty (like no events occur)

 

Thank you

Hi @shani cohen. Custom events don’t display in user streams, reason being that they’re not additional events in the stream, rather a crafted view of some already in existence.

Could be an idea to have something in the user stream flag where a custom event has been triggered, you could submit as an idea here: https://community.amplitude.com/ideas.

hey @dangrainger Thanks for your answer

 

What about the segmentation chart? Are they supposed to be shown there? what can I do with them then?

Yes they’re widely available in other parts of Amplitude, just not displayed in the user stream
