Hi,

 

I a creating a segment and having hard time to overcome flawed implementation with some quick n dirty:

 

Hit 1 - A

Hit 2 - A

Hit 3 - A

Hit 4 - B

If I set in the Segment builder that State=A THEN Within 1 hits State=B with does Adobe check

1) Hit 1 and Hit 2 = false or

2) does it compare Hit 3 and Hit 4 which would mean that this Visit and Visitor would be included in the segment?

 

There is unknown and varying amount of hits between state A and B and no way to control how many hits user sends before moving from A to B but just using Visit scope might lead to false positives.

 

Thanks for your input!

The segment as described will return any visits that contain "A then B within one page view" at any point within the journey.  So the journey described would be included as it matches this criteria.

 

I also wondered whether turning off "count repeat instances" under the menu Project > Project Info & Settings might be useful to you depending on what you are doing as hit 2 and hit 3 would be filtered out in this case.
