Not sure if this is the right place to post this but has anyone requested that support for negative lookaheads in regex filters on reports and content groups should be included in Google Analytics?

 

Is there an official channel for Google Analytics Feature Requests?

Hi @philip g

negative lookaheads used to be supported, they removed that functionality in 2009(?) evidently due to some sort of security issue they presented
