Updating content grouping - not working

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi

 

I tried editing a content grouping, i.e. changing the parameters. And now the reports include both content groupings (the old and the new). At first I thought it may just take a while for the grouping to update but I've been waiting for a week and still no change. 

 

Any ideas?

I get it now. The old rule sets come up in reports because I'm looking at a period when both rules were active. And as content grouping was applied during a period of time, GA remembers that and this is why I get both references in the same report.

Gotcha. But still.

Thanks. I've read that page like a million times and I'm following the rule
set to group content. This works for the most part.

However, amending a rule set didn't work for me. Deleting and creating a
new rule set just added another set but didn't remove the old one (although
it's no longer part of the grouping).
