Merge similar segments to one?

Avatar

Level 5

Hi there,

since we use so many report suites for our different products which though have often very similar, if not identical, variables and settings, and we use segmentation a lot, sometimes users create segments with definitions that already exist in another report suite. Because the numbers of segments grows constantly, and sometimes changes have to be undertaken that affect one segment and thus we have to change them all separatly, is there a way to unify similar segments? Since I cannot just delete one existing segment, because it is in use in many different reports and this would corrupt them. But if I would be able to unify them all, I'd have an overview and could modify them much more easily.

 

Thanks for your attention/help.

I see. 

In your case i would recommend to implement Tags for your segments. It will help you organize your segments better. This is the documentation on it - https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/analytics/segment/seg_tag.html

Additionally, you could share your idea on our idea exchange as well - http://ideas.omniture.com

Hi,

Not sure if it directly helps, but you can save the segment visualization or save the segment as a dimension.

Here's some documentation.

Hello,

I am afraid there is no functionality to merge segments per se, but there is an option to Share segments within the company. If you are an Admin, you can share segments and make them available across report suites.So someone needing to work on a similar segment can access it. You can read about that here - https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/analytics/segment/t_seg_share.html

Do let me know if that works for you.

Thanks, bu my question referred to Adobe Analytics. We don't use the data workbench.

Thank oyu, I know of this option. And we do use it of course. But sometimes we lose the big picture out of sight and create segements that are already in use in other report suites and this leads to an uncontrolled growth which needs to be cleaned once in a while. Seems I'll have to wait for the right update in the future 🙂
