if someone's location is unknown start but further communication reveals where they live, will that update the profile and add people to location specific segments?

Hey there @Todd M,

Welcome to the Community! Hope I can provide some info regarding how segments and new data work!

 

When you create a segment it will pull qualifying Profiles right away. If a Segment has already been created it and someone qualified after, you can see in our Help Article it states: 
“Segmentation requests are processed as close to real-time as possible. This means your segment will update shortly after a customer takes an action that qualifies them based on the definition you created (e.g., placing an order or opening an email). In some cases, a high volume of segmentation requests across our customer base can cause delays.

  • If you manually update a segment, it can take up to 15 minutes to process
  • If you are monitoring a segment, updates can take up to an hour”

So as long as you have a way in your Klaviyo account for 1. A user’s location to be saved in their profile and 2. A method to update that information or collect that data, it will save.

 

Hope this helped!
Alex
