Users & Segments
Users & Segments section includes:
You can filter users by adding filters to some user properties. Click "Add filters" to set a condition and then "View result" to see a table with users. In the filter, you can set various user properties and parameters, as well as events and performance windows. For example, filter out premium US users who added two friends in the last month and reached a certain level:
You can also save a custom filter template and then select it when creating a push campaign
Click the "Export" button to get a table with users (first 1000 lines) or a specific user profile. Click any row in the table to view user profile details. It consists of basic properties, custom properties (any additional parameters added during integration), and statistics on user actions performed in the app.
To toggle between basic and custom properties, open the drop-down menu:
You can also flag a cheater or a tester if needed. You can delete or download user data by clicking the hamburger icon on the user card:
Also, the user card contains the following sections:
- Last user activity. Here you can see user activity days and the events with parameters that they performed in your project during the entire data retention period.
- Filter. Here you can specify the events that you want to display in the list of user activities. The rest of the events will be hidden, but you can expand them to view.
- Highlight. Here you can specify the events that need to be highlighted so that you can quickly find them in the complete list of events.
- Calendar. Here you can select a specific day to see what events the user performed on that particular day.
By clicking Show next/Show previous you can load more recent or older days of user activity.
- Payments. In the payments section, you can see the goods purchased by the user, as well as the transaction ID, date, and cost of the goods sold:
This page shows an overview of created users’ segments. You can customize them, delete or add new ones. These segments can help you target a specific group of users, separating them by any action they make (e.g. skip tutorial, pay for a subscription) or any property.
There are two types of segments: static and dynamic. Static segment consists of a specific list of users, who perform a distinct number of events. Moreover, it cannot be supplemented. The static segment can be created using the reports that contain data on the number of users.
- Conversion funnel report. After building a user experience funnel, you can add the user list to a static segment. The segment will start from the selected step, e.g. users who installed the app, viewed an offer and made a purchase. You can also upload a CSV file with a list of user identifiers manually. To do that, create a Static segment and follow the instructions. The user list in a dynamic segment is refreshed every time new users perform a certain event or they have a property defined in the segment parameters. You can also define the parameters needed for a user to leave the segment and the parameters needed to re-enter the segment.
- You can also manually upload a CSV file with a list of user identifiers. To do that, create a Static segment and follow the instructions.
- You can use SQL to create a static segment if your query results in a user ID list.
- Or you can open the ‘Users’ section to add the filtered user list to a segment.
The user list in a dynamic segment is refreshed every time new users perform a certain event or they obtain a property defined in the segment parameters. You can also define the parameters needed for a user to leave the segment and the parameters needed to re-enter the segment.
Once segments are identified, they can be used in your reports and dashboards the same way as filters.
Each segment has five parameters: name, type, current audience, date of creation, expiration date. Click on existing segment to adjust it.
You can filter your segments in ascending or descending order by any parameter.
You can also create a new dynamic segment by clicking “Add dynamic segment” button in the upper right corner. Then you should fill in:
- 2.Segment entry conditionHere you can add customized conditions describing in details those users who will be in new segment.You can choose entry conditions for the segment:
- 1.User card parameters. Define the properties and their values that are necessary for a user to enter the segment. Use AND/OR operators to manage the segment entry conditions with more flexibility. For example, you can select the users who view your ads AND don’t buy anything in the app; an audience that installed version 1 OR version 2 of the app; users acquired through an ad campaign from Facebook AND a certain country, etc.
- 2.Event conditions. Specify a time frame and events the user has to perform to enter the segment. Here you can also define parameters of the event and/or user properties at the time of the specified event occurrence.Use AND/OR operators to add a new condition or a group of conditions for flexible segmentation. Users enter the segment when devtodev receives specified events at the current stage. All events that conform to conditions must occur within no more than 30 days. The order of events specified at this stage is irrelevant.For example, you can create a segment of unauthorized users from Brazilia who attempted to complete N levels in 4 days and analyze them later.
- 3.Segment exit condition At this stage, you can specify whether or not the user can exit the segment. Open the relevant tab: ‘User can’t leave segment’ - users will be accumulated in the segment. ‘Special exit condition’. Here you can specify exit conditions that must be met to exit the dynamic segment: by event conditions or by parameters specified in the user card.For example, you want to build a segment of users who viewed special offers and opened in-app sore within 30 days but didn’t make a purchase. Then, in the «Segment exit condition» tab you can specify ‘Purchase’ event and then all the users who did make a purchase will exit the segment.If at this stage you set up the segment exit conditions, then the next stage will open up.
- 4.Allow repeated entry.Check the box if you want the users to re-enter the segment in case they conform to conditions listed at stage 2.Click ‘Apply’ to create a segment with the specified criteria.
You can not use historical data to create dynamic segments therefore we recommend you create the segments in advance. In case you want to analyze new features, for example, you can create a dynamic segment right after the release so that there is enough time to add users to it before you start analyzing the metrics that may be affected by new features.
The static segment is applied to the historical data for the period up to three months from the segment creation. For example, metrics for the past 90 days in the users’ Basic Metrics report or any other report where you can use segments as a filter.
The Expiration date is calculated automatically and cannot be changed manually. If the dynamic segment is not used in the reports, then the segment will be deleted when you reach the Expiration date. Otherwise, the Expiration date is prolonged. Also, if you change the settings for the dynamic segment, all the previously collected data resets and we start collecting data in accordance with the new settings. Static segments have the Expiration date as well, but still, segments of this type are not being cleared or terminated.
