I want to constrain a visitor metric to show only users who made their first visit within a particular time frame.
I started using visit number = 1 but this proves difficult due to AA's visit counting system: "The visit number is based on the lifetime of the visitor, not the selected date range." (taken from here: https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/reference/reports_visitor_number.html)
This seems to mean that you can't sensibly do a calculated metric like visit divided by visitor for a first visit within a time frame.
I’d like to think that this is a known issue. Any ideas appreciated!
could you explain a little bit more what you try to calculate? the example you mentioned would always give 100% (because every unique user must have a "first visit" in a defined date range). But I guess I missed a point...
To get the "first visits" in a certain time range you need to combine 2 cases:
if you combine those 2 segments you have all the first visits in a certain date range.
