Hi all, I'm trying to create a segment based on which page first appears in a visit. Consider the following two sequences:

1. A > B > C > A > C > B

2. A > C > B > A > B > C

I'd like to create two segments:

1. A segment on all visits in which page B appears first in the visit, before C and

2. A segment on all visits in which page C appears first in the visit, before B

You can see that for this given scenario, a simple pathing segment of Page B Then Page C wouldn't work, as this segment would match against both paths above.

Any insights greatly appreciated!

Audrey Salerno won the Adobe Analytics Rockstar Contest 2019 with a tip prefectly matching your use case: Dropbox - RockstarTips2019_AudreySalerno.pdf - Simplify your life

use the segment "how many ___ before ___" to get the hits of the desired sequence.

Hi leeatsap​,

Can you please try using "Only After Sequence" filter in the conditions?

Here's a help doc that talks about it: Build sequential segments

Worth giving a try!
