How to merge conditions
Conditions are essentially Filters or Segments (depending on the Data Source).
Where do Conditions apply
Conditions can be applied to the following objects: Report, Section, Page, Widget (excl. Image, Shape, and Text), Column Set (also known as Metric Set), and Column (aka Metric).
Create a Condition
On the right-side panel, click on “Manage” next to “SEGMENT OR FILTER”
Choose a Condition or click on “Create one”
Name your Condition (1), then choose the condition type (2) and at last set up the rules to apply (3), then click on "Save".
Once created, your Condition is automatically applied. You can remove it at any time by clicking on the “x” button.
You may use several Conditions simultaneously : for instance, if you have a “UK visitors” Segment and a “Mobile visitors” Filter, you can apply both in order to have Mobile visitors in the UK. You can also use Conditions to create Custom Dimensions, for more information please check Custom Dimension overview.
Merge your conditions :
In your organization, it may happen that different users create the same conditions but with different names.
Therefore, in order to keep your organization and reports clean, we have developed a feature that allows you to merge identical conditions.
We consider identical conditions when the following parameters are identical:
- Type condition
- Condition rules
How to merge the conditions ?
In the library, on the condition level, by clicking on the three horizontal dots next to the desired condition, you will find a button "merge similar condition" at your disposal.
Just click on it to merge all the identical conditions.
Note that you can merge conditions en masse by using the "Deduplicate" button available next to the search bar.
Congratulations, you have just gone from 150 conditions to 100 conditions in one click!
