Using segmet to find traffic for today?

Is there any way to setup a segment for all visitors for today only?

 

I am currently setting up a thirdparty dashboard, but it can only show traffic for the last 30 days, and one of the widgets needs to be traffic today. But as it can import various segments from my analytics account, I figured a way around this would be to build a new segment with todays traffic only.

Hi Michael,

Unfortunately, standard Segments do not apply in Real-Time https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1638637?hl=en and due to the fact that data latency occurs in almost all aspects on your data in "same day" , I do not think you can create accurate statistics for today!

Hope this helps Smiley Happy

Thanks for the reply Bryan

It doesn't really have to be that accurate, just the last 24 hours with some delay would be fine.. But I guess this isn't possible with segments then.
