Segmentation: Segmenting for after an event

Avatar

Level 4

Hi everyone,

I have segmentation question. I feel like there is a simple answer, but I can't seem to grasp it.

I regularly get asked questions like "what products did users view after performing a search?" 

I don't want to create a visit level eVar for search, so my instinct is to build a segment of "VISIT - Search Exists", and apply it to my products report. However, my understanding of a visit segment is that it will pull in all data from a visit where the criteria is true, so for this example it will show all product views both before and after a search was made.

I want to know how to remove this noise, and only view data for after an event has happened, or before an event has happened. This appears to be possible using a "Then" segment, but this is not helpful if you have a sequence of one.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks

Toby
