Filters Question...

Post by kgaebler » Mon Jan 31, 2005 5:32 pm

Let's say some site visitors visit my site and go to the following pages:

default.asp
login.asp
secureapp1.asp
logout.asp

Let's say that other site visitors visit my site and never login to use secureapp1 and instead just visit "brochureware" pages:

default.asp
ourproducts.asp
product1.asp

I want to use ALA to see the second group of visitors and not the first. How do I use the filters to do this? I tried filtering out href values of "login", "secureapp1" and "logout" but that doesn't get rid of the "default.asp" occurence for the visitors who go to secureapp1.asp.

If I filter out "default.asp" from href, then I will lose the insight that the second group of visitors went to the homepage before going to ourproducts. asp.

So, my question is: Is there a way to skip_line for every IP address that visited secureapp1.asp and actually skip them completely -- skipping every page they visited? If I could do that, then I could see my brochureware traffic, which is what I'm trying to look at.

Thanks tons, Roman. I hope there's a way to do this.

Do you want to filter such visitors from all reports or just from one
report? (So should the filter work on site or report levels?)

Site level

Roman, I would want it to work for the entire site.

I was hoping that the filters could work in such a way that I didn't have to modify individual reports. I like your reports the way they are.

So, I want to hit the Analyze button and the view Results but not see any of the visitors who went the login route.

Thanks.

Ok. It's clear. Next week we will develop visitors filters working on sites level. We have to review the code to see if it's possible. Because currently site filters work one step before report filters. But probably we may add such filters anyway.

That would be awesome for your customers if it is possible.

If you want me to beta test it for you, I would be happy to.

Currently, I have Version 1.5.0 - that's the latest version, right?

Thanks again for all your hard work on this great product!
