Hello @Anonymous

Below link will help you set up the basic event tracking - 

Google Universal Analytics Event Tracking

In your case instead of using the Set Data Values extension use a Javascript extesion (you had mentioned jquery is not avaliable) to write a custom code the set the values based on the button click.

example:

document.getElementById("clickMe").onclick = function () {
    b['ga_eventaction'] = "Play"
    b['ga_eventCategory'] = "Videos"
    b['ga_eventLabel'] = "Fall Campaign"
};


Hope this helps

Thanks!

I cant be using Dom scraping here and just piggyback on the utag.link to fire .utag.link is configured in a way that it fires when user clicks on the CTA
