Create simple segments with quick segments

Quick segments let you build simple segments with a single operator quickly for faster insights. Quick segments are only supported in environments for individual customers.

Create a new segment with quick segments

  1. Go to Insights > Segments.

  2. Select New > Create from.

    • Select the Profiles option to build a segment that is based on the unified customer table.
    • Select the Measures option to build a segment around measures you have previously created.
    • Select the Insights option to build a segment around one of the output tables you generated using either the Predictions or Custom Models capabilities.
  3. In the New quick segment dialog box, select an attribute from the Field dropdown. Based on your selection, the system provides different values.

    • For categorical fields, the 10 top customer counts display. Choose a Value and select Review.
    • For a numerical attribute, the system shows what attribute value falls under each customer's percentile. Choose an Operator and a Value, then select Review.
  4. The system provides an Estimated segment size. Choose whether to generate the segment you've defined, or go back to choose a different field.

    Name and estimation for a quick segment.
