Custom Channel Grouping Change

I want to include Social focused emails in my Social Channel Grouping. I'm using utm_source=Social & utm_medium=eBlast and I've tried a few ways but I can't get it to filter into Social and not Other.   I tried adding "and"   Medium includes eBlast. Has anyone tried to do this before?  I want separate from email because we have another department sending marketing emails.

Hi Carrie,


In order for traffic to appear in the Social Channel grouping it needs to have:

 

Social Source Referral exactly matches Yes
OR
Medium matches regex ^(social|social-network|social-media|sm|social network|social media)$

 

So if you change the medium=social it will appear in the correct channel grouping.
