After going back and forth wtih a support person, I was told it is NOT possible to create segments that apply to multiple report suites.

 

Although there are Pre_Configured segments setup that DO work with mutliple reportsuites.

 

Visits from Paid Search
Single Page Visits
Visits from Natural Search
Visits from Mobile Devices
Visits with Visitor ID Cookie

 

 

I simply want to create a segment and apply it to the 20+ reportsuites I have setup under my account.  Right now, the only way to make this work is to create site specific segments.  This creates a lot of extra work when it appears the ability to create segments that can apply to any reportsutie is already avaialable.

At the least, it would be nice to have the Report Suite level segments applied to the DEV and PROD versions of the same site.

 

For instance, website helloworld.com should have a DEV and a PROD report suite. These report suites should have the same variables set and would need the same segments available.

This feature will help us save so much time create and maintain segments across suites.

 

Currently we have 29 country suites, all with 100% same settings in terms of variables and events. If we could group all those suites together, letting SC know that those have (and always will have) same variables/settings, then it should be fairly easy also to implement a feature where segments can be created and shares globally, beeing avaliable for the selected list of Report Suites.

 

Hope to get this feature, as it would save many hours a month for us including improving reporting and insights quality!

I agree, this is needed. Across an organisation with many report suites, custom variables are usually the same. Therefore, when creating a segment, we should be able to share it on as many report suites as we want.
