A Cube is needed to create segments. By choosing dimensions and measures on your cube, segments can be created. Dimensions are used to bucket or group the measures for e.g. by country, city, and region. There can be multiple dimensions in a cube, say for example, like total sales by a country, top 10 users by sum of sales, etc. Here total sales is a measure, country is a dimension. By choosing country as dimension we can see the total sales by a country. In this way, we can create multiple segments. Basically segment is a report that gives deep analysis on particular dimension.
The page lists all the segments that have been created by you and other team members.
My Segments tab Lists all segments owned by you.
Shared with me tab Lists all the segments (identified by the owner field).
The page lists the result of the latest job run on your segment report. The segment report can be scheduled thereby relieving you for running the same report again and again. You can schedule segment report for your daily, weekly or monthly reports.
Report through Emails to your team members. Email can be scheduled daily, weekly or monthly.
Save changes made to the chart options.
This page provides the ability to modify your existing segment reports by adding or removing dimensions or measures, re running report again or schedule the segment report for auto run.
