System variable / Geo Location

Currently the following System Variables can be used to Create “Segments” or Groups for analysis:

  • Custom Variables 1-255: If you’ve uploaded auxiliary data (Custom1, Custom2, etc.), you can segment the data based on these variables.
  • Geo Location Filter: If your license level allows for you to have access to geo-coding, you will also be able to filter based on geographic location (city, state/region, country).
  • Email List Code: This is the Email List that you used to send out the email using the Email/List Management interface.
