Total Time Spent and Bounces are not calculated as I would expect when using a Segment.
I would like the reverse; filtered pages to be counted for calculating Time Spent and ignored for calculating Bounce. This request is to provide at least the option to count that way.
Currently, Total Time Spent is calculated on a value from page 1 to page 2, from page 2 to page 3, from page 3 to page 4, etc and added up. (Time on page 6 is not determined).
If I do a Segment on prop 1, value a, time spent on page 2 is calculated from page 2 to page 5, not page 2 to page 3. This skews the time spent on the “a” value in the segment.
In the example below, if each time spent on each value were 1 second, the Total Time Spent on value “a” in the segment would be 5, not 3 as I would want.
In this case, I would rather not have ignored the missing pages in calculating time spent on value.
Bounce is defined as one call in the visit. If I segment on prop1, value a, the Bounce calculation still sees page 2 so the bounce on the Prop1 value is not seen as a bounce.
In this case, it makes more sense to me to ignore the filtered out page to show a bounce on prop1, value a. I am more interested in bounces to the value than to the report suite.
In the example below, Bounces on value “a” in the segment would be 0, not 1 as I would want.
So what I would think would happen is the opposite of what is happening. I would think the filtered pages should be counted for Time Spent and ignored for Bounce.
