Integrating Segment and Userlist

Segment helps you to integrate various analytics and other data-driven tools into your application. Instead of integrating each of these tools individually, you can integrate Segment once and then use their platform to forward data from your app (as well as other services) into services like Userlist. 

Step 0. Add a source to Segment 

You can skip this step if you already have one or more sources set up in Segment.

To add a new source, head over to the Catalog in Segment and choose the source you want to connect to Userlist. For example, you can choose the Javascript source and add a simple tracking snippet to your website. 

Step 1. Add Userlist as a destination 

Once you’ve added the new source, click the Add Destination button on the source details page. On the following catalog page, search for “Userlist” and select the Userlist destination from the results. Afterwards, click the Configure Userlist.

Select the source you want to connect to this Userlist.io destination and click Confirm Source

Step 2. Enter your Push API Key 

Head over to the Push API Settings page in Userlist.io and copy your Push token. Inside the destination settings of Segment, click on API Key and enter your Push token. 

Step 3. Enable the destination

Once you successfully entered your API Key, don’t forget to enable the destination. 

That’s it. You should see data you track via the source show up inside of Userlist after a while.
