Find Sessions for Greater Than X

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all - can't seem to find this anywhere, I'm trying to view only days (for a specific site) that have had 60 or more sessions on any given day. So of course, I need the technique to view days that meet any specific number, really. Here's a screenshot of where I'm at. Yes, I'm a low-level user. Thanks --

Hey Matt,

@ali Syme has given you some good advice here, count of sessions is a user level dimension and is a count of sessions.

What you need here is a flat table with date as the dimension, sessions as metric. Then you need to view the report, apply an advanced filter, select the session metric and do >59. You can layer in up to 6 other compatible dimensions in the report.

Here is a template to get you started.

Hey Matt,

Instead of Count of Sessions (which is a dimension) in your filter, try using Sessions (blue = metric) as your filter

Sorry - I'm confused....shouldn't I initially have the "Sessions" metric (the blue parameter) in place before I can filter down to "number or sessions"? That is, I only want to see days with a specific number of sessions (equal to or greater than) a specific number?

Hey,

Instead of filtering with the green, filter with the blue
