How to add attributes, conditions, move and delete them

 

Conditions need to be defined for each attribute in the segment. They are used to specify attributes and narrow the audience. 

Go to the Segment Detail tab (either create a segment or edit an existing one) and click on the button "Add Condition". You can add as many attributes as you wish and specify a condition or various conditions for each of them. 

Attributes and compound attributes, data types and available conditions

Various attributes are defined as a specific data type, in most cases those are:

  • string (attributes like "city" with various cities assigned to each customer)
  • numeric (attributes like "number of transactions" with various numbers for each customer)
  • date (or datetime) (attributes like "date of birth" with various dates for each customer)
  • boolean (attributes like "subscribed to the newsletter" with option yes/ no)

Each of the attributes has certain conditions available based on the above-mentioned types.

Compound attributes

Some conditions have more dimensions that are built from compound attributes (like in the example below for the "Current subscription status" attribute, we have various dimensions available "Email", "subscription status", Date of subscription status").

Compound attribute works exactly the same as other attributes, they are there to help you to see that they belong to the same group of attributes logically put together.

"And"/ "or" operators

In between, you can choose the operator "and/ or" to specify the segmentation query further. 

Remember: AND has higher precedence over OR. For example, if defined A and B or C, in fact if will behave in this way: (A and B) or C.

 

Exclusion

It is possible to set condition negation by clicking on the "Not" button. In this way, it is possible to exclude certain values. 

For example, choose all customers who do not equal email denielscott5523@gmail.com, as we wish to exclude this particular customer.

Parentheses

S

Set parentheses () to specify query further.

For example, "(A or B) and (C or D)":  customers from "(A Jakarta or B Singapore) and (C subscribed to an email or D made a transaction)".  

Remember: AND has higher precedence over OR. For example, if defined A and B or C, in fact if will behave in this way: (A and B) or C.
