Changing the Data Type of an Attribute

You have the option to let our system know what data type your attribute is. This in turn helps our system provide better accuracy in reporting and filtering.

You can change the data type of an attribute by visiting the Attributes section of your account and clicking on the drop-down tab to the right of the attribute.

If you have any issues updating the data type of your attributes, please reference our guidelines on accepted attribute data or contact support@promoter.io.
