Example use case

Imagine your business has two ways for users to spend money: they can purchase an item from your store or subscribe to a service that you offer. You represent each of these actions with Mixpanel events named "Item purchased" and "Subscription created," respectively. Later, you decide that you want to setup a funnel to track how many users are logging in and then spending any money at all. So what do you do?

You can create a Custom Event containing "Item purchased" and "Subscription created," and then save it as "Spent money.” Now you can use the "Spent money" Custom Event as a funnel step just like a regular event. Then, any time a user performs an "Item purchased" or "Subscription created" action, they'll be included in that step. You can also use this new custom event in your other reports, like Segmentation or Retention.
