Startdeliver Destination


Startdeliver connects data from a variety of sources to provide a customer view optimized to Customer Success Managers.

Startdeliver maintains this destination. For any issues with the destination, contact their support team.

This document is about a destination which is in beta

This means that the Startdeliver Destination is in active development, and some functionality may change before it becomes generally available.

Getting Started

  1. From the Destinations catalog page in the Segment App, click Add Destination.
  2. Search for “Startdeliver” in the Destinations Catalog, and select the “Startdeliver” destination.
  3. Choose which Source should send data to the “Startdeliver” destination.
  4. Go to the API keys in your Startdeliver dashboard, generate an API key, make it active and grant it “Admin” permissions.
  5. Enter the “API Key” in the “Startdeliver” destination settings in Segment.
  6. Create a User custom field you want to match a Segment event on here. You will need a field’s alias at the next step.
  7. Enter the “Startdeliver user custom field to match on” in the “Startdeliver” destination settings in Segment.

You have to identify your user with a proper userId so that Startdeliver can match your Segments events with correct Startdeliver users.

Startdeliver attaches any matched events to existing users. If no matched users are found, Startdeliver creates a new user. Startdeliver uses a custom field you specified at the 7th step of the “Getting Started” section to match a user.

For example, you have a user in Startdeliver and you want to attach your Segment events to that user.

To do this, create a User custom field. For instance, it could be externalId. Now you should update your Startdeliver user with a proper value, for example, 97980cfea0067 (this is your user’s ID). Don’t forget to set this custom field in 7th step of the “Getting Started” section.

Now when this user goes to your app, you should identify them:

analytics.identify('97980cfea0067')

After this, you can send either Page or Track events:

analytics.track('Login Button Clicked')

This event is matched with a Startdeliver user that has ID 97980cfea0067 set in a custom field externalId.

Segment events will appear on Customer and User views in Startdeliver. The views will be created instantly within Startdeliver.

For further information you can check Startdeliver documentation.

Page

If you aren’t familiar with the Segment Spec, take a look at the Page method documentation to learn about what it does. An example call would look like:

analytics.page('Home')

Segment sends Page calls to Startdeliver as a page event.

Track

If you aren’t familiar with the Segment Spec, take a look at the Track method documentation to learn about what it does. An example call would look like:

analytics.track('Login Button Clicked')

Segment sends Track calls to Startdeliver as a track event.

Personas

You can send computed traits and audiences generated using Segment Personas to this destination as a user property. To learn more about Personas, contact us for 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, Personas 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), Personas sets that value to false.

When you first create an audience, Personas 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.

Settings

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