Is it possible to filter a report by very first session over the past 14 days?

Hello!

 

I'm trying to set up google analytics tracking for my employers email marketing campaigns. I have the general reporting set up, but I would like for my data to only show emails from the past two weeks. Right now my data is tracking all sessions from the past two weeks, but when a user goes back to and clicks through a campaign(email) from a month ago that campaign is now being reported on as well.

 

I was thinking the the only way for me to have up to date reporting is if I filter the report to only track Campaigns that had their very first session over the past 14 days. Not the users first sessions.

 

Is this possible? I tried to segment with the Date of First Session option, but didn't receive the desired results.


Thanks in advance!

Hi @Matthew C - this can be achieved by using a sequence segment - try recreating it as in the picture below:
