The ‘Time spent per visit’ dimensions record the amount of time a visitor spent on the entire visit. It uses the following steps to measure calculation:
These dimensions are valuable when you want to understand how long visitors interact with your site in general.
Time spent requires at least two hits in a visit to measure time. Visits that consist of a single hit do not appear in this dimension.
This dimension is visit-based, meaning that the value applies to every hit within the visit and doesn’t change. Compare this dimension to Time spent on page, which is a hit-based dimension.
These dimensions work out of the box for all implementations. If a report suite contains data, these dimensions work.
Multiple dimensions exist for time spent per visit:
"Less than 1 minute" to
"More than 15 hours". Visits typically don’t last longer than 12 hours; however, visits can exceed 12 hours if using timestamped hits or data sources.
See Time spent overview for more general information on time spent.
