Add a description to an event property

You can change the description for an event property in two different ways. Since the same event property can apply to multiple event types, you have the option to add a description for the global event property as well as for the specific event to event property pair. If the event property description that is specific to an event does not exist, then the description will default to the global event property description.

  • To change the description for an event property specific to an event, navigate to Events and click on the event name to open the Details panel. Then type a description where it says Add a description, and click Apply to save. 
  • To change the global description for an event property, navigate to Properties > Event Properties and click on the event property name to open the Details panel. Then type a description where it says Add a description, and click Apply to save. 

Add a description to a user or group property

You can change the description for a user property or a group property by navigating to Properties > User Properties or Properties > Group Properties. Click on the property name to open the Details panel. Then type a description where it says Add a description, and click Apply to save.
