I'm trying to filter to a specific content group within a dashboard widget. The first two fields make sense but I'm not sure what to put in the second two:




No matter what combination I've tried, I end up with no data in the report.

I'm not exactly sure what you need here; that said, if you’re asking what to use after the name of your content group you have your operator field ("Containing" in your screen shot here) and then the ultimate filter pattern.   If you want to show all content that is contained in your custom group and in relation to overall pageviews you could use regex as your operator and .* as the pattern. This would show the metrics for the R&R Toolkit you have defined and also any that are "not set" so it give you a feel for the size of the slice of pie for this group.


If you only want to show pages that are in the group, then change your filter from "only show" to don't show and select containing and not set as your pattern.
