What you will learn in this article
This article will cover more details of the Segmentation Module (Right Module) and how to use this feature to breakdown users and understand their behavior in your product. Segmentation allows you to divide up users into groups, compare different user groups, save user groups, and create inline cohorts. All of these features will allow you to easily follow a user group's behavior over time.
Before diving into this article, it is recommended to have a look at the prerequisites below. This information will help with both useful information and best practices. Additionally, this will contain links to related topics and Help Center articles.

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 and click "Select All". 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:
Note: Be careful not to select the "freeform" value after pasting and click "Select All" instead.
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.
If you'd like to reuse this Segment, you can go ahead and save it. To do so click on the Saved Segments > Save Segment.
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.
The Historical Count Feature will apply to all events in the Event Segmentation chart. You can read more about it in Historical Count Documentation.
