Integrating with Segment

Please note that installing through Segment and integrating with Segment are two separate actions: to install and integrate with Segment start with your installation, then enable this integration

If you use Segment throughout your platform, we highly recommend installing Appcues via your Segment integration. Installing through Segment will sync your Segment information (including user properties and events you collect from your own platform) to Appcues.  Click here to learn how to install Appcues via Segment.

After installing through Segment, you'll want to complete this integration for a two-way affect where Appcues sends data and events back into Segment. 

Why integrate with Segment?

Segment is a powerful tool that collects your user data and pushes it into other specialized tools so your team and company can make the most of the information you all share. Integrating Appcues with Segment adds your Appcues data (which users have/haven't seen, completed, and interacted with your flows) into the mix. This integration can also send Appcues data into other tools you've integrated with, like Mixpanel, Heap, and Google Analytics. 

Appcues events will automatically be sync'd to your Segment account, then sent off to your other Segment integrations. The best place to see this information is in the Segment Debugger or in your Schema, the latter of which looks something like this:

What you'll need

  • A Segment account and Appcues account, both fully installed on your app across the same pages and domains
  • For the Segment browser integration, you must have installed the Segment Javascript SDK

How to use this integration

First install Appcues via Segment  here. Clicking Install will redirect you to Segment where you can choose what data you would like to send into Appcues. This is the information you'll use to target flows to your users.

To send Appcues data back to Segment, go to your Appcues Integrations page, hover over the Segment integration, and select Activate.

To send Appcues data into other tools that (1) receive Appcues data and (2) that you use with Segment ( see a list here), enable these integrations directly in Segment.

Deleting the Segment integration

To disable your Segment integration, return to your  integrations page. Hover over the Segment integration and select Deactivate

In Segment, visit your Settings for Appcues and Delete this source. You can also remove the API keys.
