Ah ok, no on 3.9.
Is there a specific reason not to include events? Events are perfect to store any kind of data ofcourse..

@twanmeijerinkhttps://github.com/twanmeijerink are you using the latest version of Matomo? Cause it should actually not be possible to segment by event anymore see #12976https://github.com/matomo-org/matomo/issues/12976 .

It's a performance reason. It would be a lot of trouble for most Matomo databases out there scanning the entire database of all visitors/actions that were ever taken for specific events. And with events you usually can't really identify a user. You would rather use a custom dimension or userId or so to identify a specific visitor. Or do you record personal data like an email address in events?
Yes, we record emailaddres in events.. :-(
Any chance you could save it as a visit custom dimension or userId on top? We're actually not planning on allowing to filter by events for performance reason. I'm sorry but I'll have to close the issue for now. I highly recommend ideally setting it eg as a visit custom dimension (additionally if needed). This will allow you to filter for it.
