For most users, Event Segmentation is the foundational Amplitude chart. It shows what your users are doing in your product. With the Event Segmentation chart, you can build analyses that:
- Measure the top events performed over a selected time period
- Analyze how often events are fired
- Determine the count of unique users firing events in your product
- Clarify which users tend to fire certain events
Like most Amplitude charts, Event Segmentation charts are built by combining events and event properties with user segments. These can be simple—like, for example, counting the number of users firing a specific event—or they can be intricate formulas of events.
Before you begin
First and foremost, events will not appear in any Amplitude charts until instrumentation is complete, so make sure you've got that done. You'll definitely want to read our article on building charts in Amplitude, as this is where you'll learn the basics of Amplitude's user interface. You should also familiarize yourself with our helpful list of Amplitude definitions.
