Segment is a functionality that allows you to create different audience/user groups based on common attributes/characteristics. You can create any "segment" of users based on the rules/attributes/parameters. Gainsight PX provides you the ability to create Segments by using customer inferred data, custom fields, product data, and product behaviours.

Reusable Segment

Once a segment is created, it can be reused in your multiple business actions like engagements, NPS® and CES Surveys, Multi Question Survey, Product Mapper, etc.. which helps you save time. These are used to target specific users in the app based on attribution or behaviour.

Use Case: To define a segment with URLs to avoid redefining URLs in each engagement. Best used for defining "data constant values". It is useful in cases where you want to refer to a list of elements such as: Account Names/IDs, URLs, etc. For example, when you want to display an engagement for a subset of your customers based on their lifecycle stage or based on the URLs etc.

IMPORTANT: Segment is not a way to filter historical usage data, you should use audience filters to do that. For instance, you have triggered an engagement named NPS® Survey, the users will receive the engagement only when they meet all the criteria defined in the segment.

Working with Rules

Rules allow you to filter users and when grouped together, create useful segmentations. Segments can be used to identify various cohorts like Admins, Practitioners, and Executives.

In addition, they can be used to identify industries and verticals such as SMB, Mid-Market, Enterprise, Telecom, Tech, etc.

For example: In the following screenshot, a Segment is created based on the User Admin Role within Enterprise Account Plans.

Rule Logic

When adding Rules to your segment, you can decide if the Rule set is “AND” or “OR”.

  • AND Logic: All selected criteria must be true to trigger the segment.
  • OR Logic: Any of the selected criteria must be true to trigger the segment.

In addition, you can have multiple filter criteria within a Rule.
