Tracking First User Interaction with an Event

[ Edited ]

I have implemented a series of events on my website categorized as Micro and Macro events. Is it possible to determine which event a user interacted with first? 

 

For example, a user starts a new session on my web page. The user then triggers three events that I consider Micro events. This specific user leaves my web page and returns the following day.  A new session is opened and then the user triggers three different Micro events again. Is it possible for me to determine which Micro event was this user's first?

Hi Robert,

You might want to check the Events Flow report.

Behaviour -> Events -> Events Flow

"Use the Events Flow report to visualize the order in which users trigger the Events on your site."

Let me know if that's what you need.

Thank you for your response. I did know about Events Flow, but is it possible to create a segment that only includes the users first event? I would like to segment my users first event, so I can create a report of what drove a user to his or hers first event. I understand that I could get an aggregated view of all events in the category I'm looking for, however, the second and third events are not important to me. I need to see a specific users first event.
