Create a segment using the Days Since Last Visit dimension

Use a hit container, "is greater than" as the comparison operator, and "7" as the value associated with the comparison operator.

You are using 7 as the value because ITP 2.1 is supposed to reset cookies for visitors who don't come back within 7 days. ITP 2.2, which was announced in late April 2019, has changed this to 1 day rather than 7.

Create a calculated metric using your Days Since Last Visit > 7 segment

I like having a calculated metric for this since it makes things look cleaner. You can use "visits" as the metric when building this.

Create a calculated metric for % Days Since Last Visit > 7

Create a segment for Apple browser visits

Since ITP impacts Apple browsers (Safari), create a segment that focuses solely on these. You can use a visit container with Browser Type as the dimension, equals as the operator, and a value of "Apple".

You'll probably want to set up a few freeform tables in Analysis Workspace to see what happens with these calculated metrics:

  • Browser
  • Browser Type
  • Device (using Mobile Device)
  • Device Type (using Mobile Device Type)
