Segmentation Value as Token

Segmentation Value as Token

It baffles me that we can't use the result of a segmentation update as a token, primarily to sync with other fields like SFDC fields.

Note that the current segment is available (as a raw value) in Velocity, so there's a precedent for it being surfaced as a standalone value (though not necessarily a static value as would be required to sync to SFDC.)

This would be so helpful! It's really cumbersome to sync segmentation info to SFDC.

you can easily run batches periodically. Won't be real time, but I suspect you don't always need that real time in SFDC.

as long as when you create a new segmentation you also update that CDV.... and like you said it's not done regularly, so likelihood of forgetting to update BOTH is high...
