Hi,

I have a issue when i create a customized segment to exclude one of my event label. I would like to exclude one event label ( using the "exactly matches" condition ) but when i compare it to a "all user" segment i realize that, others event label seems to be impacted by the segment. It will probably be more clear with following links

Hi Bertrand,

 

You are creating a segment to exclude all session in which a hit that matches label 2 exists.  This not only throws out the label 2 event, but all other pageviews and events that took place in those sessions.

Hi Theo, 

Make sens ! But is there any way to only exclude hits in a segment and not sessions ? 


Thx.

Hi Bertrand,

 

I'm not sure I've tested this use case for it, but give sequence based segments a shot.

 

You can specify 1 action followed or not followed by another .. tricky part will be first interaction but you may be able to approximate what you want with something like this:

Hope that helps...
