User Segments

User segments are a collection of users based on a rule (dynamic collection) or selected specific users (static collection). User segment category can be a mix of network and guest users, or network users or guest users only.
Admins control who can use the user segments (example: only domain admins or domains and intranet admins can use). You can send a message in MangoApps to one or more custom created user segments or to the auto-generated user engagement-based user segments.
User segments at this time can be used to
  • Send private messages.
  • Setup personalized navigation for the user.
  • Send messages to a collection of large users called user segments without having to create a group.
Following auto-generated user segments based on user engagement are also available to send a message.
  • Highly Engaged Users.
  • Engaged Users.
  • Moderately Engaged Users.
  • Not Engaged Users.
User engagement-based user segments list will be automatically updated every 30 days when the user engagement analysis is done.
User segments can be edited, duplicated, or deleted at any time by the admin.

Rule Based User Segment Type

When you use multiple conditions with the same field, such as "location = ..." and "location = ..." repeated several times, the logical operator employed is 'OR.' Essentially, it will translate to "location = ..." OR "location = ...".
On the other hand, when you utilize multiple conditions with different fields, e.g. "location = ..." and "title = ...", the operator is 'AND.' For instance, "location = ..." AND "title = ..."
Here's another example to illustrate this:
Alfred, an Office Director with Network Admin permission level, would like to create a User Segment that will include all users that are registered with the companies: CableInc, Acme, and Electrician's Friend.
However, he only wants to include users from these companies' Seattle locations in the USA.
In order to fulfill these conditions, he sets up the following user segment:
He will utilize the condition field:
"Location = USA - Seattle"
and the condition fields:
"Organization = CableInc"
"Organization = Acme"
"Organization = Electrician's Friend"
The logic performs the 'AND' operation between "Location = USA" and each value of "Organization = ..." The logic will also perform the 'OR' operation between each value of "Organization =..." in the rule.
So, essentially, the logic will search for users that meet the following criteria:
"Location = USA" AND "Organization = CableInc"
"Location = USA" AND "Organization = Acme"
"Location = USA" AND "Organization = Electrician's Friend"
