Segment Detail page
The Segment Detail tab shows details of each segment containing:
- "side panel" with basic information about the segment,
- "top panel" for deleting, copying and saving the segments,
- "builder" to set conditions for the segment,
- "insights" with preset reporting for this particular segment,
- "export" to enable exporting of segmented customer profiles to destinations.
Remember: by default, if no conditions are set, the segment will contain 100% of the customer profile's database.
Name of your segment that can be searched for in the Segments tab. View-only signs will be shown for users with a view-only level of access.
ID of the segment can be found as well in the segment URL
ID can be used, e.g., when displaying banners to segmented audiences.
View the author, and view/ edit users invited to this segment.
Author and invited users will receive notifications about changes made to a segment (edits, errors on exports, if the segment was deleted). If you are the author of a segment or the administrator, you can invite new users or edit the access level for users.
The author can not be deleted from the users, his access is not editable.
Accesses to other users also depend on their user role & permissions granted. Edit access to a segment enables edit conditions and exports but is dependent on roles & permissions. If users do not have access to exports at all, they will not be able to view exports in the segment even if granted edit access.
Users with the view level of access can not edit segment conditions or exports. Invite all users by selecting the "Invite all users" button.
View/ edit tags for the segment.
Tags help to manage segments across Meiro Business Explorer. They can be used as a filter in the Segments tab.

As an administrator or a user with edit-level access, you can delete or copy a segment. The deleted segment can always be restored from the trash.
Warning: Copied are conditions and tags. Are not copied: export history, export schedules, invited users, and notes.
Changes are not autosaved. To do so, click on the "Save Changes" button. To restore the version of a previously saved segment, you may click on the "Undo changes" button.
Select attributes and conditions to segment customer profiles. For example, it is possible to filter customer profiles that use the Google Chrome browser. The list of available attributes to segment is custom for each client.
Remember: for Lookalike segments, the ability to update conditions is not available. If you need a lookalike segment with different conditions, create a new custom segment with the desired conditions.
By default, segments will display segment size from the most recent calculation, which may be outdated. You can also click the “Refresh” button to recalculate and get the most updated segment size. Remember, exports are recalculated each time.
Insights for segmented customer profiles. Insights for all customer profiles databases are in the Analytics/ Insights tab.
Search through insights:
- By name.
- By the data source of the attribute, the insight is calculated for.

Expended version of segment insights
The expanded version of the segment insights allows for comparing the value of insights between a segmented audience and the global audience.
In the example below, the orange bar chart displays the number of segmented customer profiles with subscribed status, which is 83.3% of the total segmented customer profiles. The light orange section shows that this attribute is known for 90% of all segmented profiles.
The grey bar chart shows the number of all customer profiles who have subscribed, which is 43.5%. The light grey section shows that this attribute is available for only 52.6% of all customer profiles, which is 845 profiles.
Export your segment to the destination of your choice. The list of available destinations, together with its settings, is available in the Data library/Destinations tab (export destinations are set up by Meiro analysts upon agreement with the client).
Remember: Segments are not autosaved and refreshed only when fresh is initiated. Export is always made on recalculated, the most up-to-date values.
It is possible to schedule a specific time for export. Time is scheduled in the UTC timezone. Currently, you have the option to set a schedule for the following:
- at a particular time of the day,
- repeat every minute /hour (from hour to hour).
Additionally, it is possible to configure multiple schedules for a single destination.
For some destinations, it is possible to set precise parameters managed by an administrator. Parameters define where segments will be exported in the destination (e.g., the ID of the audience that will be updated or the name of the audience under which export can be found in the destination). Each export destination is slightly different.
Learn more about segment export from these articles.
Once a segment is exported to a destination, it is recorded in the export history. There you can:
- Identify who initiated the segment export.
- Review the timestamp indicating when the export occurred.
- Check the status of the export.
- Access detailed logs that provide a step-by-step performance of the export process.
- Furthermore, if the segment was exported as a CSV file, you can download the file directly from the export history.
Remember: export history is cleared automatically. By default, exports are deleted after 7 days. You can adjust this duration by contacting the CDP technical consultant.
