Knowledge is power. Now it’s even easier for you to manage your customer data flowing into Segment and unlock the most value for your teams. Over the last few weeks, we’ve launched new features, including a centralized location to easily configure and manage your workspace notifications. You can also receive detailed insights into the amount and types of data you’re sending to Segment. It’s also easier for you to set up and customize your workspace, through the new workspace home setup flow. In addition, you can quickly configure and label source environments as “Dev” or “Prod” to control who has access to each.
Here are the latest features, product updates, and integrations launched at Segment.
Have you ever wanted to manage all of your workspace notifications for sources, destinations, and warehouses in one place? Now you can! Through a new UI, you can easily see and subscribe to all your notifications in a consolidated place. With more granular options, you can subscribe to the workspace updates that matter most to you. For example, you may just want to be notified when a source is created or deleted, instead of receiving all source notifications.
If you’re an existing customer, you can review your notification preferences by navigating to your workspace settings in the app and selecting “Notification Settings” under “User Preferences.”
Customers now have increased visibility into which data types are flowing into their Segment workspace. Customers on a business plan can see their throughput count in the app, broken out by the number of API calls and objects they send to Segment (per MTU). With this visibility, you can now monitor how you’re trending against your account’s limits.

Here are a few more Connections updates:
Workspace home setup: To help you start getting value from Segment even faster, we released a new workspace home setup. It provides step-by-step guidance for all the tasks you’ll need to accomplish to get your data flowing into Segment and have your workspace up and running. It’s now even easier for you to add new sources, as well as send your data to your favorite tools for email, marketing, analytics, and more. The new workspace home is currently available to customers on our Team plan. Business plan customers can request access by emailing email@example.com.
Separate user permissions based on environment: As a best practice, we recommend customers separate their sources by environment (Dev, Prod, etc). But, we’ve also heard from customers that there isn’t an easy way to do this in the app beyond naming the source (e.g., “iOS - Dev” and “iOS - Prod”). Instead of manually naming your sources, you can now apply a label to each source based on the environment. This not only makes it more clear which sources include prod data and which sources include dev data, but it also enables you to set granular permissions based on environment. For example, you could give your QA team access to only sources with the “Dev” label. You can also filter your workspace view by environment to quickly view only your prod sources. To get started with environment labels, visit the source settings tab and select the relevant environment from the dropdown.
