I have been in this pickle for a while now and i think Mixpanel doesn't solve this problem yet, but i'll communicate my problem to the community perhaps i am blind by some feature that may exist.


So we have an Event that we are logging called "View Screen" with Properties "0" & "1", now there are users who view screens with properties "0" only and some view screens with properties "1" and some who do both "0" and "1". When we aggregate all 3 cohorts i just mentioned, they give me the total View Screen count in a day.


Now what i am looking forward to accomplish is i want to count the sessions where this current event occurred split by these 3 different cohorts.

For instance:

SessionCount#1

  • Session Start
  • View Screen Event Property 0
  • Session End

SessionCount#2

  • Session Start
  • View Screen Event Property 1
  • Session End

SessionCount#3

  • Session Start
  • View Screen Event Property 1
  • View Screen Event Property 0
  • Session End

What is the purpose? Sessions is my way of figuring out figuratively what a user does in a single session based on my session settings.

I Can do it in Analytics as per the below image but sadly can't do it in Mixpanel.


Any help?

Hi @Zaki,

Are you looking for this Track Session Article? It seems like Session in Insights might be helpful to set your query

Sadly @sara.horton that's not what i am lookin for. I am looking to measure sessions where a specific type of event occured.

Let's suppose the same User is doing the below:

Today:

Session Started -> Event: Screen X Occured ×5 -> Session End

Session Started -> Event: Screen X didn't occur -> Session End

Session Started -> Event: Screen X Occured x 2 -> Session End

In Insights, if i choose the above Event: Screen X for Today.

Totals -> 7

Unique -> 1

Sessions -> 2


I posted the requirement in Ideas hopefully they'll do it one day.
