Can attributes be used to define a segment? (and then thus slice experiment results)

Hi Claire, yes, they can
there are two ways to do this
one, if you already have the values in your data source, you can define custom segments or dimensions from that data
two, if you pass any additional values to the exposure event that is tracked in the
trackingCallback
method, those can be used as dimensions in the analysis

thanks Graham - just to clarify - is that different than the "Targeting Attributes"?

targeting attributes are passed to the SDK and those values are evaluated locally - that data doesn’t hit our servers - but can be made available to the experiment analytics if you pass it back.
