Filters and segments are a way to isolate specific sessions (recordings) in your project. They allow you to be very specific about which details you want to see in the sessions. Below, you can see a list of the many filters in Smartlook. They're organized into different categories to help you find what you need.

Combining Filters

After selecting your first filter and clicking ''Save,'' then just click ''Add next filter.'' You can continue to combine as many filters as you need to your search as precise as possible.


Here's a combination of the following session parameters:

  • At least 2 mins long

  • From Australia or New Zealand

  • Referrer URL from Google or Facebook

Filters using the 'AND' logic

When you add a rule, the filter follows the ''AND'' logic. If you want to filter recordings that lasted at least 2 minutes (''Duration'') from visitors located in the United Kingdom (''Country'') on November 11, 2020 (''Date''), your filter should look like this:

The filter above will only retrieve recordings that satisfy all 3 rules. You can also use multiple rules within a filter category. For example, a filter for users that visit your features (1) and pricing pages (2) — both of them — should look like this:

Filters using the 'OR' logic

Within a category, you can also combine rules using the ''or'' logic (disjunction). For example, if you want to search for visitors that come from a Google or a Facebook ad, you can use the following filter:

Segments (saving filters)

This is a real time-saver. After you apply a filter, you can then save it as a segment. This will generate a shortcut that you can use any time without having to set the filter manually whenever you want to see the visitors that fulfill a certain condition you’ve already saved.
