Many of us had been using Adobe Analytics for years before a segment manager existed. We had hundreds if not thousands of segments already created. It is not ideal to have to click through each one to see if the rules are still relevant. It would be much easier if the "Date Last Used" was an additional column you could sort by in the manager. If I saw that a segment had not been used in years, I would be able to delete it without hesitation. The "Date Modified" is partially helpful, but this only goes back to mid 2014.

To be clear, "date last used" would only go back to whenever it got implemented, as we are not currently tracking the date when a segment was used.

Hmm. Then is there a better solution to this problem ? Something is needed to help go through all of the existing segments. What about just letting us know if a segment is being used in a dashboard, bookmark, or scheduled report?

@michelleg: There are definitely things we can look into.
