Terms to know

These terms should help you as you begin your journey on MoEngage.

1. User Profile

MoEngage creates a user profile for every person that launches your app and visits your website. 

2. Segmentation 

The segmentation feature allows you to segment your users based on their attributes and actions in your app/website. You can follow it up by creating a campaign targeted to these segments

3. Analytics

MoEngage Analytics helps you understand how your users interact with your web and mobile apps. You can use it to track events and analyze trends to measure the performance of your app and campaigns. 

4. Events

Events track the actions that users perform in your app or website. For example - launching an app, viewing a product, sharing a song, making a purchase, etc. 

5. Key Metrics

Key Metrics is a dashboard page that provides all the important & necessary information of day-to-day use for marketers. A quick glance at Key metrics shows usage, engagement, and performance metrics of the product. 

6. SDK

SDK (Software Development Kit) is integrated into iOS and Android applications and provides powerful marketing, customer support, and analytics tools. MoEngage offers SDK integration for both iOS and Android. 

7. API

MoEngage API provides a web service where you can send actions taken by your users directly via HTTP, rather than through the mobile SDKs. This allows you to pass user data to MoEngage that is not tracked within your app or website. 

8. Roles

MoEngage allows multiple team members to be added to the same account. There are 5 Access roles (Admin, Manager, Marketer, Developer & Analyst) with different permissions. Learn more on MoEngage roles

Campaign approval allows Marketing teams to control/review the campaigns that are going live by putting in place a creator-approver (maker-checker) approach. 

13. Dynamic Product Messaging

You can include your product catalogs in your campaigns using Dynamic Product Messaging
