I got a segment which I update monthly and include the future month as a filter (in one container) at the end of the prior month.
Example: I use month of the year = October & year = 2019.
Now the issue is that 2020 is not yet available in the list. Is there a way, can you make it available this December already?
Or do I need to generate a fake image request...?
Thank you for your help!
Do you have a screenshot (with sensitive data removed), so I can see it visually. Hopefully I can think of a work around.
I assume that 2020 is available as soon as you have traffic (data upload to future dates is not possible).
I suggest you just change to "contains 2020" as text comparison - and change a month later to "equals".
Thanks Dave & Urs!
"Contains" is not available but that pointed me to the following idea: choose January + exclude-container 2019 ..., and on 1st of January 2020 the right data will be filtered .
The segment is about excluding traffic that looks like bots, competitors' scripts etc.... it contains various old browsers and user agents.
Example: a certain user agent might show normal user behaviour in 2018, but since a month in 2019 it has been odd (huge amount of traffic, no orders), so we want to exclude it from a certain point onwards.
thanks for sharing the solution, great idea!
