Step 7: From Condition Scoping select Condition.
Across all sessions means adding all users to the audience if the condition is true for all the previous sessions. Within the same session means adding a user to the audience if the condition is true for a single session. The same event means adding a user to the audience if the condition is true for a particular event.
Most of the time across all sessions will be selected.

The membership duration refers to the time the metrics are calculated for. You can specify that the metric condition can be true during any point in the lifetime of a user by selecting “set to maximum limit”, or that it must be true during a specific number of days, like 30 days.
