I want to measure in how many visits a checkout-button was clicked. To do so, I create a segment:

 

Checkout Button clicked: button name (c03) equals checkout

 

Now I want to calculate the number of visits. I did this for different segment-scopes:

 

# Visits for Segment Checkout Button clicked with Hit Scope: 1001

# Visits for Segment Checkout Button clicked with Visit Scope: 1010

 

If I use different scopes for the segment, the number of visits is different. I was expecting that it would be equal.

 

Why is it different?

 

hits Segments Visits

are you using evar or prop? if use evar, it may happen.

maybe somewhere on your webpage are triggering a call with this value persist but no instance.

If add more criteria: c03 instances exist, will you see the same result?

Checkout Button clicked: button name (c03) equals checkout AND Checkout Button clicked: button name (c03) instance exists

Did you exclude the current day from the reporting period?
