In the Events section of Settings, you can make adjustments to Events tracked in your app. You'll need to be an App Owner to access this menu. Here you'll be able to rename Events, disable Events, hide Event Attributes, and treat Event Attributes as numbers or text.
App Owners can rename and add descriptions for Events in the Dashboard. On the Events tab of the Settings page, locate the Event you want to rename. Enter a new Event name under Display Name. Don't forget to Save Changes.
Keep in mind, changing the display name of the Event changes its name throughout the Dashboard. It does not impact the processing of future Events or change any historical data that has already been captured. The Event maintains its original name in the Raw Log Export.
Add a description under New Description. The description is displayed when the Event is viewed in the Events report within the Dashboard.
Event Attribute data can be treated as text strings or numeric data for visualization purposes. On the Events tab of Settings, App Owners can toggle on or off Enable Numeric Features to enable or disable numeric features, such as automatic bucketing and average and total metrics. Adjust this if we’ve incorrectly detected that an Event Attribute is numeric, or vice versa.
App Owners have the power to permanently or temporarily turn off event tracking for specific events. Disabling an Event stops data collection for the Event and its Attributes as the data moving forward.
Re-enabling an Event begins data collection again. However, Event data from the time the Event was first disabled to when it was re-enabled is not recoverable. A disabled Event's history is hidden in the dashboard. Historical data is still accessible in the Raw Log Export.
To disable an Event, first select the correct app on the Events tab of Settings. You can select multiple apps but you must disable Events on the individual event level for each app that is selected, even if the same event name exists in multiple apps. Uncheck the box to disable the event.
App Owners can hide Event Attributes to prevent their display in the Dashboard. When Attributes are hidden in the Dashboard, they are still accessible in the Raw Log Export so there is no loss in data.
To hide an Event Attribute, expand the Event and deselect Enabled for the specified Attribute. The data is no longer stored in our system but is accessible in the Raw Log Export. If an Attribute is re-enabled, processing will resume, and the Dashboard will have a hole in data from the time the event was disabled. All Attributes for an active Event are still in Raw Log Export regardless of if they are disabled. Attributes cannot be renamed, only hidden.
