I have one filter that was set up to include my Development, Validation and Production domain addresses.   Outside of the filters, how can I separate the traffic that I show in my reports?

 

Thanks

Keep on - just create a new include-session segment with condition Hostname exactly matches www.yourdomain.com

Hi Kristen,

if you like to keep with your current filtered Analytics view you always have the possibility to separate the user sessions regarding to your three domains by setting up an advanced custom segment that only includes sessions with the relevant hostname as condition.

Segments also work retroactively and contain always whole user sessions. Filters only work from the time on you set them up.

Thank you! I tried that and wasn't getting any results for my segments. Knowing that is the correct way though, I will keep trying.

Thanks!
