Using View Filters in other Views?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I run an ecommerce site, and I'm trying to create a filter to view all my transactions that earned fewer than $100. I then would like to see what the demographics and other patterns of this audience may be.

 

I created a filter within the 'sales performance' view that filtered my audience. Can I then save that filtered audience and apply other views to that population? When I try to navigate to any other view (Audience, Acquisition, etc). That filter is cleared.

 

I tried to apply an 'admin' level filter to create that audience, but it doesn't give me the necessary fields to create the filter I need.

 

Sorry for what may an elementary question. Thanks!

Hi Ed,

AT gave you some good advice on using segments. I'm not a big fan of using the predefined areas in the segment builder as sometimes, as in your case, you don't get what you expect. What you're experiencing is definitely counter-intuitive.

I've created one here for you that is session (You can change to users but I can't recall if the revenue would roll up) based that should work for you:

You can try creating a segment. That should be available across Audience, Acquisition, etc.

Thanks, A T.

I tried creating a segment. In the Enhanced Ecommerce section, I chose to segment users who 'purchased an item' (button) with Revenue < 100. That returned 99.2 percent of my audience, indicating that it's also including people who did not purchase an item (99% of my users did not purchae an item). Any idea why? Thanks
