The Settings page

  • Updated

This article will help you:

  • Manage organizational and project-level settings

You can access the Settings page by clicking the settings_icon.png icon. Any user within your organization can access this page, but settings can only be changed by organization admins and managers. Within the Settings page, you can navigate between organization-level settings, your own personal Amplitude settings, and more.

Organizational settings

The organizational settings area is where you'll find everything you need to manage settings at the organization and project level. The default view is the General page. This will display your organization's name, org ID, org URL, and plan type. 

Within the Plans & Billing section, you’ll find more detailed information about your Amplitude usage: the contract start and end date, your organization's event or MTU limit, events or MTUs used by your organization this month and last month, as well as other key pieces of usage information. This will help you track your usage from within Amplitude itself.

Users on Plus plans can also manage billing from here.

The organizational settings also include tools to help you:

Session Replay settings

The organizational settings also allow admins and managers to view or modify Session Replay settings.

The session replay settings area will display your overall session replay capture plan allowance, current usage, and a list of projects showing sample rate, instrumentation status, and if replays are being captured for a specified project.

Click View Usage Over Time in the session capture card to review usage specific to your plan.

From the project list, you can:

  • View a list of projects that are capturing replays, along with their sample rate and current instrumentation status.
  • Toggle Session Capture on or off for a specific project. Turning off session capture for a specific project only applies to future sessions.
  • Click on a project name to modify the sample rate, or percentage of user sessions being captured. Modifying the sample rate in settings will override the existing SDK implementation's sample rate, and may take several minutes to take effect.

From the sampling module, click View User Sessions Chart to view an estimate of the total sessions captured on a monthly basis. 

  • Click + Select Project from the bottom of the list to add a project. Projects cannot be removed once added.

By default, the project's session capture will be set to on and its sample rate will match the rate established in your SDK implementation. Adding a project via the SDK does not automatically add it to the list. However, an admin adding a new organization via the organizational settings will add a project to the list with session capture set to on and a sample rate of 100%.

NOTE: Replays can only be captured if instrumentation is accurate and complete, and a sample rate is set. Be sure to use the most recent SDK for best results.

Personal settings

The personal settings area is where you can manage your own profile, site settings, and notifications.

Profile

Your profile page displays information specific to you. You can also set up and manage your Slack integration here, as well as set certain preferences.

The Profile panel shows your organization, role, email, name, and password associated with your Amplitude account. Click pencil.png to change your display name or update your password.

The Site Settings panel includes a series of toggles you can use to customize your Amplitude experience. They are mostly self-explanatory.

The "Always Remove Leading Spaces from Export” option tells Amplitude to delete any empty spaces from the beginnings of cells in an export .CSV. With the default setting, these spaces are left in place, which can result in messy data, or more significant data errors. This setting works for positive values, but not for values that start with or are = , +, -, or @

If you do keep this option disabled, you should remove these spaces later in Excel or Google Sheets, using the Text to Columns feature.

Please see our Help Center article about how to manage your Slack integration in Amplitude for more details.

Notifications

In the Notifications area, you can to change your Slack and email notification settings for Amplitude's collaboration features. Here, you can enable or disable email notifications relating to you, your organization, or your spaces.
