    In Google Analytics 4, you can indeed use a large number of custom event parameters, which can be beneficial for detailed usage tracking. The downside you discovered is that too many custom events can convolute and overwhelm your ‘Event’ reporting. In GA4, defining a custom ‘click’ event different from the automatic click tracking performed by GA4 could indeed result in increased data, as GA4 might track both. Instead of creating custom events for each click, consider utilizing event parameters to differentiate between various clicks. However, the information you provide via parameters like ‘event_label’ might not show up as clearly in default GA4 reports. You may need to use the ‘Analysis Hub’ to customize your reports and extract the desired insights. While this might require a bit of setting up initially, it should offer a cleaner solution in the long run. It is highly advisable to take time and consider the best strategy for tracking events that suits your needs.
