Standard

Yes! Time on Page measures the time a user spends on each pageview. This allows you to create search criteria around the total time users spend on a page or build metrics that analyze the average, median, min or max time users spend on a page. Additionally, you can measure a user's active or inactive time on a page. 

The example below shows how to search for users who spent longer than 10 seconds on the Home page.

4) Can I calculate a metric for the average time on a page for all visits to a specific URL?

No - Time on Page metrics only work along with Visited Page events, not Visited URL events. However, you can use the Time on Page property as an event modifier for a Visited URL. For example, you could search for all sessions where a user visited a specific URL, when their time on the URL was greater than 30 seconds.

5) Can I easily see the median time on page for all of my pages?

Yes - create a metric measuring the median time on page for visits to any page and then group by page.
