Simple report for a set of pages at different locations

Hi

I am trying to set up a report for a set of pages (about 200) that are distributed at many different locations on a website. The idea is to make a pretty simple report of e.g. page views, sessions etc. in a list - nothing fancy ... but I can't seem to figure out how.

So I tried setting up a custom dashboard showing page views ands sessions etc. And then filtering for specific URL's. The problem is that when I input more than one row of URL's, there is no data to be shown.

I am assuming that this method won't work for multiple pages, so how do I go about it without having to construct some intricate regex-setup? It seems to be a pretty simple task.

Thanks!

Hi Thomas,

depending on the variety of your page URLs you want to filter you would probably need some regular expression. It's not that tough [1]. If you want, you may post here some examples of pages you want to filter - we may help you with that.

You may test every regex in the filter field in regular page reports if it worked correctly.

All filters in place, you can use the shortcut feature [2] to freeze your report for later use.
