"Count repeat instances: No" for workspace flow-project

TheJouni 11-11-2016

In Ad Hoc Analysis there is an option in the "FLOW" -report to count multiple sequential elements either as one or multiple instances of the variable. How can I do this in the regular Adobe Analytics workspace project? 

I need to create a segment from a specific flow, but the flow project won't allow me to count automatic page refreshes as a single instance. 

Any ideas if that "Count repeat instances: No" can be replicated in Analytics workspace flow projects?

No sorry I'm not aware of any methods to strip reloads out of it this now other than maybe exclude hits where reload >= 1 ? Not sure if this would work though as I haven't tried it out.

Hopefully the update to strip out reloads will be coming soon!

Hi if you go in to AW and go to project - project info & settings you'll find the option in there.

Although note that at present this option doesn't apply to flow and fallout visuals but is to be fixed in a future release.

Excluding reload segment did not work for me, since looks like it does not apply to previous or next steps, so it still shows up, but in with a decreased amount. Seems this has to be solved by Adobe as a feature.

Please let me know if you managed to make a workaround

Thank you very much! I have been googling this for days! Do you know is there a way to replicate it in segment creator since I can't use the flow visual to create the segment?
