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. 

If you're a Growth or Enterprise customer, you'll also see some additional information, including the contract start and end date, the event limit (event volume quota), events seen this month, and events seen last month. This will help you track your event volume usage from within Amplitude itself.

Only admins can see event quota alerts. They'll receive email alerts when event volume hits 80%, 90%, 100%, and 110% of the event quota.


The organizational settings also include tools to help you:

Personal settings

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


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.


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.


Year in review

The Year in Review provides a high-level summary of your activity during the selected year.  It summarizes your work based on number of active days, queries you have run, and charts and dashboards you've created. It also includes a quick summary of the top followers of your content, as well as the top authors of content you followed.


Set Amplitude to light or dark mode

The theme preferences settings allow you to change the way you view Amplitude. Use the Settings page to access these settings. From there, choose between Light Mode, Dark Mode, or to automatically match your system's settings.
