Is it possible to track multiple flows for a single user?

I really like the Flows tool for analyzing the path that a user takes through my application, but it seems like it is limited to a single flow for each user. Is it possible to analyse all the flows a single user took?

@JamesStewart -

Flows currently shows you more than one common pathway for the users in the cohort that you are analyzing.

Each flow is dependent on a beginning step, but you can choose a step that you know all users will trigger, such as a "Sign In" event.


I find this overview video really helpful to understand all of the features within the tool:

but there is also a great overview article written out here:

It is worth mentioning that if you are looking at a single user, then their activity feed in Explore is probably the most helpful for you.
