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.

The property name will be the snake_cased version of the audience name you provide with a true/false value. For example, when a user first completes an order in the last 30 days, we will send an identify call with the property

When the audience is first created an identify call is sent for every user in the audience. Subsequent syncs will only send updates for those users which were added or removed since the last sync.

Segment lets you change these destination settings from your Segment dashboard without having to touch any code.
