As noted in this forum thread: Calculated Metrics for Cohort Analysis
The specific use case I had was that I wanted to do a cohort analysis based on visitors that had viewed a specific piece of content. Ideally:
- A segment for visits that viewed that content
- That segment used in a calculated metric -- just the segment and then Visits as the metric
- That calculated metric as my inclusion metric
Alas! Not doable. So, it winds up being painful DW exports and stitching together of visitor IDs.
