Question

Is it possible to ignore user in a funnel and to hold a property consistent instead?

We’ve got a funnel of events that can be completed by multiple users, but they would all have a common “company” property. Is it possible to hold an event property constant across a funnel rather than the user id? Our current funnel drops any company who progresses across multiple users.

Hey @Neel 

You can use the holding constant clause if you have instrumented the desired property for every event in your funnel. More on that here - https://help.amplitude.com/hc/en-us/articles/360053338671#holding-properties-constant-and-session-based-funnels

Let me know if this is what you were looking for.

Thanks, Saish. I’ve given this a try already, and I don’t think it’s quite right. It seems like this is a method of making sure a session only progresses down the funnel if both the user and the property are the same. I want to totally disregard user, and I only want to see if there are events with a given property that go down the funnel.

 

We have multiple companies that use our product, and each company has multiple users. I would like to be able to tell if some combination of multiple users from a given company progress down the funnel. When I holding constant clause, it still doesn’t seem to catch the fact that many of these companies are progressing down the funnel because it isn’t a single user all along the way.

Hey Neel,

Thanks for clarifying the use case. Have you tried filtering the funnel events on that particular property? If you have instrumented group properties, then a chart like this might help. To my understanding, this focuses on counting unique accounts completing the funnel instead of users.
