Planhat Destination

Destination Info

Getting Started

Getting data from Segment to Planhat’s Customer Success Tool is easy.

Once the Segment library is integrated with your product, toggle Planhat on in your Segment destinations, and add your Planhat API Key which you can generate in Planhat under App Settings > API Access.

The Segment Planhat destination is 100% handled through our servers, so you don’t need to bundle their iOS or Android SDKs. Your Segment SDK will be enough.

Planhat supports the identify, page, and track methods at the moment.


When you identify a user, we’ll pass that user’s information to Planhat with userId as Planhat’s External User ID. Segment’s special traits recognized as Planhat’s standard contact profile fields (in parentheses) are:

  • name (name)
  • title (title)
  • email (email)
  • user_id (externalId)

In addition, all calls will get Segment as ‘source’.

If the userId or matches an existing Contact in Planhat the Identify-call will automatically be associated with that Contact. Otherwise a new Contact will be created in Planhat. New Contacts received from Segment can either be discarded or manually assigned to a Customer profile in Planhat.


You can send computed traits and audiences generated using Engage to this destination as a user property. To learn more about Engage, schedule a demo.

For user-property destinations, an identify call is sent to the destination for each user being added and removed. The property name is the snake_cased version of the audience name, with a true/false value to indicate membership. For example, when a user first completes an order in the last 30 days, Engage sends an Identify call with the property order_completed_last_30days: true. When the user no longer satisfies this condition (for example, it’s been more than 30 days since their last order), Engage sets that value to false.

When you first create an audience, Engage sends an Identify call for every user in that audience. Later audience syncs only send updates for users whose membership has changed since the last sync.

Real-time to batch destination sync frequency

Real-time audience syncs to Planhat may take six or more hours for the initial sync to complete. Upon completion, a sync frequency of two to three hours is expected.


Segment lets you change these destination settings from the Segment app without having to touch any code.
