Combining pre-custom-channel data with new channel data

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We made a new default channel grouping called "pintweet" that has the rule "source contains pintweet".  But, prior to creating this channel, all of our "source = pintweet" were thrown under "(Other)", which contained pintweet as well as others.  



Is there any way to move the pintweet data in "(Other)" (e.g. sessions, new users, etc) and combine it with the new channel grouping "pintweet"?




Pintweet has 43 sessions right now, but after combing it with the old pintweet data in "(Other)", it'll have "43 + (whatever the old data was)".  



Please let me know if this is possible Smiley Happy  Thank you!

Hi Rosa,

default channel grouping is in a pre aggregated state and as such changes to the definitions will not have any impact on historic data. You can use Custom grouping channels instead.

Kind regards,
