Frequently Asked Questions

What actions can I perform on the Data Page?

The Data Page offers two key functions:

a. Archiving Data

Hide specific attributes or events from your Users page without deleting them or affecting their functionality within user/company segments. Please note that default attributes and events provided by UserGuiding cannot be archived.

b. Changing Data Format

Modify the format of your user/company attributes to suit your needs.

For instance, if you previously sent a value as a millisecond timestamp, you'll be able to change its format to date.

Can I change the data type of both user/company attributes and events?

No, you can only change the data type of the user/company attributes you send to UserGuiding. Data types of default attributes and events provided by UserGuiding cannot be altered.

Is it possible to change the data format of an attribute used in a user/company segment filter?

No, you cannot change the data format of an attribute if it is currently utilized as a filter in a user/company segment.

With the insights and capabilities offered by the Data Page, you can enhance your data management strategies and make the most of your UserGuiding experience.
