Introducing Annotations in Segmentation

Last edited: Jul 12, 2022 Published: Jun 11, 2014

Here at Mixpanel, we know that you’re constantly trying to improving your product. Now you can annotate these updates within Segmentation to more easily understand how they’ve impacted your customers engagement.

To create an annotation, hover over a data point in your Segmentation graph and click to display the annotation creation tooltip. Then type in your annotation and hit add.

The annotation will be displayed in the table below the graph, and you can hover over it to highlight the exact time the annotation was created at. You can also toggle on the “Show all notifications by default” option, which will persist the annotation highlights on the chart. This setting will be saved to your user account.

Use annotations to track new product releases, A/B tests, or any other historical event. We even provide an Annotations API for you, in case you want to automatically create annotations (on new application deploys, for example).

As always, if you have any trouble or want to give us some product feedback, you can reach us at
