Visitors by unit operation countries/territories location widget

[ Edited ]

My company has 7 operating Units, each have a set list of countries they operate in.

 

For example: South America operates in the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Costa Rica

 

I would like to show a table with ONLY the operating countries for each unit.

I try to create the following widget, but it returns "There is no data for this view".

 

 

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks :-)
Where the filter is applied.. use a single filter

Only Show > Country > Regular Expression > Argentina|Brazil|Chile|Colombia|Costa Rica
(the pipe character | between the country names in the regular expression means "or")

When using more than one filter, filters work in the order they are applied so if the visitor does not match the conditions set by the first filter, the visit gets discarded and doesnt make it to the 2nd filter and so on.

Hi @Clint R 
did you try to post an image in your post? If so, im unable to see it.
Are you able to try and repost the image or give further info about the widget you are trying to
create.

If it is a new view that the filter is being applied to, new Views do not populate with past historical data so the filter validation often doesnt give a clear indication whether the filter is correct or not as a new View does not contain a necessary amount of data for it to give a result.

If you are using a single include filter based on country

with the following regular expression: Argentina|Brazil|Chile|Colombia|Costa Rica
It should work.

I'm assuming you have created a test View to test the filter on before applying it to what will

be a main reporting View once the filtering is correctly setup on it.
