Analytics Workspace Flow chart: remove page reloads

alv123456 16-11-2017

In my opinion the Flow charts visualization in Workspace has a big flaw: it displays the page reloads: whenever I try to see next page, biggest chunk is again the same page. It would be good to remove the page reloads and make it similar to the Google Analytics flow charts, to only see next page. This would make the flows more clear

Thanks for the idea! This is definitely on our backlog to address. Your votes and comments will help us prioritize and solve this problem effectively.

Also, one workaround that may help here is that you can build a segment to exclude reloads, then apply that segment to your Flow visualization.

This is one feature that is on my "most wanted" list. BenjaminGaines I tested that detour to exclude reloads with segments and it didn't work -> reloads where still there in flow reports. I did that test months ago, so I can test it again if you know that it should work?

Most wanted by me too. Still going to reports and analytics for sensible pathing reports (numbers-wise).

You can apply a segment excluding all reload hits, which is something I do for all workspace flow reports right now. It's a nice workaround until they're excluded by default.

That reduces the problem slightly, but still does not work: See e.g. this Pathing Report. I have a segment on it to count only Pageview Hits and exclude Reloads, but we still have a lot of movements from /search to /search.

I can only support that. Applying excluding reloads reduces the hits, but still gives me the same pages for preceding and succeedign hits.

The following ideas are duplicated by:

Allow page refresh to be turned off in workspace flows

Analysis Workspace: Flow visualizations, exclude reloads

These two threads add an additional 7 votes here.

Hi Gigazelle​ how do you create a segment that excludes page relaods?

Oh man! Heck yes! This would make my life a lot easier.
