Hello everyone,


I am currently trying to create a widget inside a dashboard that shows me the Top 10 'first interactions' inside a table. The data should be the same as in the Behavior Flow report in Behavior. Can anyone give me a hint on how to build such a widget? Thanks for your help in advance!


Best regards

Hi Thorsten,

There is no way to do that in the UI. You would have to do a couple of things to get this. One would be to pass a time stamp and session id into a custom dimension(s) and pass that into your page and event hits. Then you could use the API to pull the data by session id / timestamp etc etc. Bottomline is that it's not the most straightforward thing, requires some thought and 3rd party tools.
