Segmentation options

Segmentation is a powerful tool to create precisely targeted mailings lists by filtering your contacts into auto-updating lists called segments. Segments are defined by the conditions you set. Mailjoy offers tons of conditions for you to use in your segments -- we encourage you to experiment! In this article, we'll outline all of the available conditions you can use to define a segment. 

Segmentation is only available for Mailjoy Pro users.

How segments are defined

A segment is defined by the conditions you set. A condition involves some sort of operator (the way you're checking) and value you're checking against. Let's say we want to set up a segment that shows me all contacts who live in California. When setting up the segment in Mailjoy, it would look like the below.

In this example:

State is the condition. 
Is is the operator.
California is the value.

Available conditions

We'll cover here all the conditions that Mailjoy offers by default. If you have custom fields setup, you can create segments with those too.
