After defining criteria for a segment using Data fields you do not get an option for Select Items under Definition
In the exercise for segment creation, the 1st criteria is applied using "Statics" and then we get a choice to select items - under the Definition. However when we define a criteria using "Data Fields" like the one for product type you do not get an option to Select Items (although you get other options like Starts With, Ignore Case, Ignore Null) under Definition.
Are the options (Select Items, Starts With etc.) customizable across "Statics" and "Data Fields" so that the user can choose whether they get Starts With or Select Items etc.?
Thank you for your query. It's good to see your interest on the topic.
The selection options for a criterion depends on:
a) Whether the field is selected from one of the Analysis Project related tabs - 'Recommendations', 'Modeled Data' or 'Statics' or the other tabs.
b) The number of unique values available in the database for that field.
c) The data type of the field.
If the field is numeric and selected from one of 'Recommendations' or 'Modeled Data' tabs, which means the field is part of 'modeled analysis' in the Analysis Project, you'll see a histogram with analytical data.
If the field is non-numeric and selected from 'Recommendations' or 'Modeled Data' or Statics' tab, you'll either see a categorical bar chart (if the number of unique values is less than 8) or a 'Select Items' button (if the number of unique values is more).
For fields selected from all other tabs, you'll see selection options relevant to their data types.
