Setting up tracking with Segment

Dreamdata can stream tracking data from Segment if set up on your website. For Dreamdata to work you should as a minimum track page views and form submissions. And do identifies at all form submissions. You can refer to Segment's documentation here

Segment data shows immediately in the debugger, however, might take up to 24 hours to be included in the data model and analytics.

What will you need?

  • An existing Segment account.
  • Admin access to your Segment workspace.

How do I integrate?

  1. Log into your Segment account here, and choose the relevant workspace.
  1. Choose "Connections" from the menu on the left.
  1. Click on "Add Destinations" in the top right corner.
  1. In the search bar, look for Dreamdata and click the Dreamdata box from the results.
  1. On the next screen, click "Configure Dreamdata".

  1. Select your Segment source and click "Confirm source".
  1. You will now need to add a tiny piece of code called API key, which allows Dreamdata to access your Segment data securely.

Click on the API Key box at the bottom of the page.

  1. In a separate tab, log into the Dreamdata app. Click on Data platform --> Sources --> Segment.
  2. In your Segment tab, click Edit and paste the API key into the box, and then click Save.

  1. Your Segment data should be flowing, however in some cases, it can take up to 48 hours to show.
  2. To check whether data is streaming, in the Dreamdata app, click on Data platform --> Sources --> Segment. The number of events on the right bottom corner should be higher than 0, and you should be able to see data when you click on the See events buttons.
