Find First Instance of an eVar being set


Level 1



I have an eVar that's set to expire on Visit and I'm trying to find the first page the variable was set. Instances don't work because of the Expiration setting and Entries/Exits only work for Props.   


In Workspaces, I have evar12 as the Dimension and evar12 Instances as the metric.  Then I'm breaking down evar12 by Page.  Even tried a custom attribution of First Touch and Same touch without success.


Any thoughts on how to find this in Workspaces?

The only workaround that I can think of is to drag the Minute or even Seconds dimension. That will sort your hits by time and you can then manually find the first instance of eVar12. It's kind of a silly workaround, though, but I can't think of anything else.
