Reporting on a site section

Hi all.


Looking after a website of around 5,000 pages. I want to apply my custom reports to specific sections of the site. I only need to see metrics for a section at a time, so I can report an overview to departments.


All the pages in the section are prefaced with something like:


How do I do this? I don't have direct access to filters (though I can request one), but I can segment if necessary.


Any help would be much appreciated!

Create a report filter (advanced link at the top right of the table) for Page Path Level 1 matches strategy-policy-guidance.

Note that if you use a segment, you will get pages from other sections as well -- segments include entire sessions, not just that pages that match the segment criteria.
