is there any difference in the following two approaches when creating segmentation that should show the last 3 transactions for each recipient:
1) Targeting dimension: Recipients
Filtering dimension: Recipients
Add data...Data linked to the filtering dimention
2) Targeting dimension: Recipients
Filtering dimension: History of transactions
Add data...Data of the filtering dimention
Both approaches are correct.
Major difference will be the type of SQL query generated in background.
Option two will generate a JOIN query which is far more effective when it comes to working on huge volumes.
Hope this helps. If you find the answer to be correct, please mark it as the correct answer so that others can benefit out of it.
