Dashboard widget filters and | operator

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I've been using a Dashboard Widget for some time with a filter that uses the | operator to "Only Show" two Event Actions. So the filter is: 

 

Only show - Event Action - containing - Subscribed|conversion

 

It has been working just fine up until today. Now the widget just displays "0" if I have the operator in the filter. Is there an update/bug that is now rendering the | operator useless? If I only include one of the terms at a time, removing the | then the widget works fine and displays the proper number of total event actions containing that one term.

Hi @Dustin W S,

 

I'm assuming you're using the pipe (|) as an "OR" separator.

If that's the case, your filter should be of the Regex/Regular Expression type and not "Containing".
