As we covered in a separate article, Getting Started with Event Segmentation, Event Segmentation is the core Amplitude chart that uncovers behaviors of your users and what they're doing in your product. Event Segmentation allows you to create charts from events and event properties. There are 3 main components to the Event Segmentation chart: the Events module (left module), the Segmentation module (right module), and the Metrics module (bottom module). Together these 3 make up what we call the Chart Control Panel.
This article will cover more details of the Segmentation Module (Right Module) and how to utilize it in different ways. We also have an article covering the Metrics Module (Bottom Module) in more detail!

Adding a list of property values
If you wish to include a list of property values in the dropdown, you can copy and paste a list of comma-separated values. For example, if you've implemented "email" as a user property, you can paste the following string instead of selecting each value one at a time:
Custom Segment Labels
If you have a very complicated segment, then sometimes the default chart labels may be difficult to read. You can customize the names of your segments to reflect the user segment it represents. For example, the following chart has 2 segments where each segment is segmented by 4 different things. The default name is hard to read.
You can change the name by hovering over the segment name and clicking on it. Changing the segment name will also change the chart labels.
Inline Behavioral Cohorts
You can create simple behavioral cohorts inline directly within the right module of the chart control panel. This will allow you to create a behavioral cohort in the context of a chart without having to navigate away into the Behavioral Cohorts tab. To do this, select the "+perform" button in the right module. For example, the following chart would allow me to see out of the users who purchased a concert ticket in the last 30 days, how many also downloaded a song or video.
For more information on the clauses available in the drop-downs to create cohorts, see our cohort documentation here.
