Creating an Engaged Visits custom metric?

Hi,

 

I want to set up a custom metric that gives me the number of sessions where page depth > 3 AND time of site > 60

 

I feel like regex is my answer, but I'm very new to that and really don't know how I'd set it out?

Not sure does it work but another non regex way could be to create a custom metric that give TRUE or FALSE based on the conditions then do a sum of the session and set table filter to filter where the custom metric is TRUE

You could put a GA segment on a sessions report to see the number of sessions where page depth> 3

 

Although that wouldn't be a custom metric, it would allow you to see that metric visually (if that's what you're looking for)

That's a good idea - could work in a pinch!

I was thinking of this but I'm wanting to build it into other visualizations. EG in the below table I'd rather have an Engagement metric than Goal Completions.
