  • Change descriptions of events and properties

You can change the description for an event to help other members of your organization understand what an event represents. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Click the event name to open the fly-out panel on the right side.

  2. Click the Description field.

  3. Type in a description of the event. 

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 can either add a description for the original event property, or for an event property that has been overridden for a specific event or property group. (If the latter doesn’t exist, the description will default to the global event property.)

NOTE: Event properties that are not overridden share the same original event property details.

To change the description for an overridden event property specific to an event, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Events table and click the event name. 

  2. In the event details panel that opens, navigate to Details > Properties, and click the property you want to update.

  3. Make sure the event property is overridden. If it is, Manage Override will be visible in the blue box within the details panel, and you can skip to step 4. Otherwise, click Override to apply the change only to a specific event or property group.
  4. Click the field directly below the property name and type in a description of the property.

To change the original description for an event property, follow these steps: 

  1. Navigate to Event Properties and click the property you want to update.

  2. In the event property details panel that opens, click the field and type in a description of the property.
