Add Metric Filter Without Adding a Segment

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a shared Google Analytics dashboard where I’d like to duplicate a widget and add an additional filter. The filter I’d like to add is “Only show Mobile (Including Tablet) Exactly matching Yes” but I notice the Mobile (Including Tablet) metric is depreciated. I attempted to add the built-in segment “Mobile and Tablet Traffic” but that ended up affecting all of my widgets. I only want that metric in a single dashboard widget.


How do I add a functionally equivalent mobile filter without adding a new segment to my dashboard?

Hi Matt,

 

You're right. IS_MOBILE and IS_TABLET are deprecated. If you want to segment by mobile or tablet within a custom segment all you need to do is, under “Conditions”, select “Device Category”, then select “Regular expression” and enter “Mobile” or “Tablet”.

 

I guess here's the solution that you're looking for your dashboard:

Value: mobile|tablet

 

Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.
