With no doubt MS Dynamics 365 is the most advanced segmentation builder for marketers comparing to other marketing automation platforms. There are a ton of capabilities to make the segment that you want. But...... there is a huge con on to the way that Dynamics 365 helps the marketer to make fast and spot-on segments, and that is the lack of good categorisations in the queries.

a few tips to make the editor more easy to use for marketers 😊

a) first suggestion: The posibility to build a segment based on a activity or based on attributes.
If you make this a simple dropdown option at the start of the builder, than you see in a glance what kind of query this is! Very useful and easy to implement. 👌

b) if you want to choose a filter for example with a queryblock, you have more than ten options to choose. It would be better to have this categorised, so the filters are more easy to find.

My suggestion on categories:
- Account
- Contact
- Leads
- Other entities that users choose less often (Events, Building, Foms, etc etc)

Then if the user want to select an attribute, categorize again, for example:

Contact/ General attributes-> Age, Gender
Contact/ Geografic -> Adress, country, billing adres etc)
Contact/Financial -> Revenue, total revenue year/month etc)
Contact/Communication-> Email, memberships, preferred language, leadowner, etc)

Contact/Behavioural -> Email clicks, leadscore, website visits, submitted forms, events visited etc)
Contact/Other -> Less common filters (you probably can easily investigate wich attribute are less popular, but are handy to have in place.

et voila! You have a segmentation builder that's more user friendly for marketers and in line with the workmethod of Dynamics competitors such as Pardot, Marketo or HubSpot.
