Allow use of wildcards in "has viewed web page" behavior query URLs

 It would be really helpful to be able to use wildcards i.e. mywebsite.com/category/* would return results for anyone who visited a URL that stared with that string and then had anything in place of the *

How will this idea be used?

currently when writing a query on web browsing behavior, just must enter each individual URL they might have visited. We have several thousand articles and and they can get to those articles without having to go to a category page first. It would be really helpful to be able to use wildcards i.e. mywebsite.com/category/* would return results for anyone who visited a URL that stared with that string and then had anything in place of the * - this would be especially helpful for scoring models to assign points to a given category.

    Alternatively you can easily add a page category custom event onsite or through Google Tag Manager that fires on page load. 

    This way you simply use the custom event criteria and enter the category level in the friendly name.

    ie: When has triggered custom event CATEGORY where friendly name is equal to EVENT NAME within the last 30 days.

    This also has the added benefit of only needing to check for one value against each record in your database. If you use a wildcard approach WCA would need to check each record against every possible URL combination from the wildcard on which will increase the processing time of the query.
