You can do this by visiting the People page on the dashboard and adding a person with a few attributes or by uploading a CSV of people.

You can also add customers via our API, libraries, or third-party integrations.

Create a Segment

The goal of segments is to deliver a personalized marketing experience or business offering to a set of customers.

To create a segment, navigate to the Segment page on your dashboard and click New Segment. Enter the name of your segment, the description, and your segment rule.
