Hi Everybody,

this is my first post, hope somebody could help.

 

I recently created a custom channel group but i notice a strange things.

 

If i analyze assisted conversion with Source/Medium i got a sum > http://jmp.sh/gOEJHJj

If i analyze assisted conversion with my channel group the grand total is wrong > http://jmp.sh/s5Fa1Zt
(55,494+605+119 is not 55,588).

 

Is there anybody could explain me this kind of difference?
Thanks a lot,

Riccardo

Hi Ricardo,

 

You've also added in a secondary dimension and your totals are off.  I suspect you may be seeing sampling and getting sampled data in your scorecard and then the per-aggregated totals in your secondary dimension.

 

It is odd but odd things happen with sampling.   Smiley Happy

 

Best,
