Calculated metric from a segment

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have created a segment for a website. I want to create a calculated metric that compares the pageviews for that segment with the pageviews for all the site's overall data.

 

Eg, I want to show the segment's pageviews as a % of all pageviews

 

Is this possible?

Hi Libby,

I had a feature request for this put in over a year ago and have made several attempts to raise awareness about this missing functionality.

 

Here is my last post - https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/Data-Studio/thread-id/...

I've even put in another feature request - https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/72320745
*I actually put in one before that, but they changed systems and didn't carry over my request to the new system.

You asked your question in a different way, but I believe we're both looking for the same thing. I have all of these GA segments & I'd like to know how many people as a % are getting to that segment. In data studio I'm using scorecards, so I'd like to be able to divide the results of 2 scorecards to get a %. 

I've done a lot looking around & there is no solution at this time that I can find. I honestly believe this the be The Most Overlooked Feature Of Data Studio & nobody is talking about it.

Best,

Dustin
