Take a look at the images.
One is lifted from plugin:segment [phpList Resources] and it states, when trying to drill down into a specific user or users, the admin can use regex. That’s a great feature!
In the “Evaluating Conditions” paragraph it states. "Or to select an arbitrary 20% of subscribers using the subscriber id field the target value could be $. This selects subscribers whose id ends in 0 or 1, which will select approximately 20% of subscribers.
Great! When using the drop-down selection there are two choices about ID’s: “Subscriber ID” and “Subscriber Unique ID” both of which presumably use regex. And yet if an admin actually opens the phplist record for an email user (see image id.png4 ) and since the documentation only states “Subscriber ID” we are left scratching our heads wondering which field represents the “Subscriber ID”: is it the field called “Unique ID”, or “UUID” or “ID” (at the top of the record) all of which are different animals from each other.
There is nothing called “Subcriber ID” in a user’s record.
When composing a campaign, the drop-down list on the Segment tab has “Subscriber unique id”. That is referring to the uniqid column.
But how would anyone know that unless they opened the mysql database which is not suggested in the “Evaluating Conditions” with regex, tutorial. In fact it’s pretty clear that the documentation suggests users to view the phplist email accounts record.
You don’t see how that can sow confusion?
