Please provide preview before making the segmentation live

At this moment for the dynamic segment, it doesn't give us the ability to preview the member list before the segment is made live. And even after it made live, it took some time for the segment to be populated. From the usability point of view, this is inefficient for the marketing manager to ...

Thank you for your feedback.

This is a great suggestion! We will consider this in our roadmap.

 Specifically we will add instant evaluation in the upcoming incremental releases. This will be delivered for profile based segments at first. It will replace the current estimation button functionality.

Allow us to force a segment refresh

Currently there is some mystical timeframe which segments refresh the members. Maybe once an hour. For someone who is trying to create a segment and test it to see what members it returns this is impossibly slow. If you make a first stab at the list, you can't expect people to go away for an h...

Thank you for your feedback.

We are providing several related tools to improve the respective performance:

1. Live Editing of segments

2. Instant Evaluation of changes being done by the user 

3. Much enhanced query performance 

With those enhancements in place a force refresh now is less relevant. But if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

Sincerely,

Christian Abeln, PM,

Quick update segments

Segments can take up to 6 hours to update, which in turn means more than a 6 hours wait time for actions to occur in a Customer journey based on this segment. It is totally understandable that the heaviest of segments require some time to update, where the segments are building on several othe...

Thank you for your feedback.

We released this feature as part of the functionality in April 2019 and everyone should see significant improvements by June 2019. This is when all organizations will be migrated to the new marketing insights backend.

The performance of segment calculations is on a whole other level of performance now.

Please allow to customise the segment members grid

At this moment the segment members grid is hardcoded to show the predefined columns. It will be useful to honour Dynamics 365 view or something similar when displaying the grid.

Please make relationship name to be more user friendly

At this moment on the segment definition page, where I need to set related entity, it is giving the entity relationship name that only system customizer would understand. Please allow a user readable name for the relationship.

Allow us to modify the views of members in a segment

Currently the list is very unhelpful, it shows full name, email1, phone, Account name, and crmrecordid (quite possible the most useless field ever displayed anywhere as we can't use it for anything at all in the real world). The list is not even sorted alphabetically. Clicking on most of the c...

Allow us to ask for segment members in the advanced find

We want to ask for segment members in the advanced find to combine segment criteria and advanced find criteria (which are much more than segment criteria) and to build views and dashboards based on it. (There is a bug that shows the "segment member" entity in the advanced find but it doesn't w...
