Question by ken thomas, Jun 20, 2017 10:38 PM

how to get analytics data for a specific pipeline

Click Origin 1 (Page/Hub)

Custom Event Origin 1 (Page/Hub)

Origin 1 (Page/Hub)

Search Origin 1 (Page/Hub)

These are all related to the pipeline, since they are about Origin 1 and the Page/Hub.

These 4 items, how are they different and when should they be used as filters to get answers in analytics? I have read and it is still 100% not clear. are the related in some way, by set theory, does one always include one or more of the others?

For example, If I want to get the number of clicks on results in a certain pipeline, which one should I use as the filter? It is 100% not clear what these are and when they should be used and for what.

Can you point me to what is unclear in the documentation? Is seems clear to me...

Regarding your question, I hope this information will help:

  • Click Origin 1 (Page/Hub) -> Only in clicks
  • Custom Event Origin 1 (Page/Hub) -> Only in custom events
  • Search Origin 1 (Page/Hub) -> Only in searches
  • Origin 1 (Page/Hub) -> In all event types, the information will be fetched according to the request (based on the other filters, dimensions and metrics)

Regarding your example "If I want to get the number of clicks on results in a certain pipeline", you should use Click Origin 1 (Page/Hub), as what you want is the number of clicks.

It is not clear at all. when is something a custom event? when is it a search event? when is it a click event? why would you use Origin 1 instead of Click Origin 1? the logic of what each *one is, when it applies, how it works, is 100% unclear *to me.

I did not implement anything. I am not the admin of the system. I am seeing odd data in the reports based on using the various 4 different varieties of origin 1.
For the same period of time, Custom Event Origin 1 (Page/Hub) gives 616 clicks. Origin 1 (Page/Hub) gives 71 clicks.

If, as you claim, Origin 1 includes all of the others, why is it less for this one? That makes no sense. I would like to understand what is the proper filter to use for Origin 1, in order to count all of the clicks in a certain pipeline and why they give different number that do not seem to make any sense. If I get any answers from my success manager about this maybe I will share back here.
