I have a dashboard on which I want two widgets:

  • Widget one: A statistics widget with the count of unique visitors that did not fire any event actions.
  • Widget two: A statistics widget with the count of unique visitors that did fire specific event actions.

Widget two was a piece of cake:

  • Statistics: Unique visitors
  • Filter: Only show Event action, with regular expression: (action1|action2|action3)

But I can't seem to get widget one to work, I tried the same setup as two but as regex: .+ and exclude instead of only show. This would seem to me like it would exclude all unique visitors with any event action? Instead it shows results in 0 visitors.

Edit: Oh, and it is important that the widget actually exclude any event action, not just the action1, action2 and action3 from the other widget.

Does the regex work with include to show you a subset of your visitors, or with an include does it show you all your visitors? – Stephen Ostermiller Jan 17 '15 at 11:12
