A segment is a group of customers with the same attributes and behaviour together for easier dissemination of information, targeting and analysis. Segmenting helps to specify data for a particular need.
You can access the Segments tab by clicking on the icon in the home screen or on the tab in the top menu
The Segments tab lists all available segments. As an administrator, you will have access to all existing segments. As a user, you will only have access to the segments that you have been invited to. Segments that a user has no access to are greyed out. To get access to a segment, please contact a Meiro administrator.
Segments can be filtered by:
- My Segments (segments user has created),
- Shared with me (segments user has been invited to),
- Others (all segments available).
It is possible to choose a compact or wider view of the list of segments, depending on the user’s preferences.
In this tab is possible to create a new segment (Meiro administrators and users with the level of access that enables segment creation) or search through existing segments (enter your search through the search box or choose a tag).
The Segments tab displays a segment’s name, tags, authors, last export timestamp and last modified date.
The icon next to the name of the segment shows on hover if segment has any schedules set.
It is also possible to move a particular segment to the Trash tab (only possible for users with edit level of access). Segments can be always restored from the Trash.
You can open the full settings of a particular segment by clicking on it.
