Data types

  • Updated

On the Data types tab, you can manage the event type names and translations that are saved to the system. Here you can see the data that is used in creating segments and make translations that are easy to understand. 

By opening the arrow that is on the right-hand side of each event row, you can also create translations to other languages. 



Go to the Properties tab to manage the event properties.



1 You can open the properties of the event type from the arrow.

In the translations section, you can give the data fields of the event translations that are easy to understand. Data might come in very technical form through different integrations, so user-friendly translations make it easier for the user to understand the meanings. 

Translations are usually done by Liana during the onboarding project.

3 You can see translations in other languages from the arrow and you can add them to the languages in use.

In the type menu, you can modify the right data type for your data. For example, numerical values' type should be set as Integer so that they can be compared in segment creation (greater than - smaller than)

Text - Data in text form
Date - Date
Datetime - Date and time
Float - Decimal 
Integer - Whole number
List - Data in list form. Can include multiple data that are processed as their own data units. You can, for example, compare whether a contact has bought an iPhone and/or iPad.
First name - First name
Last name - Last name
Birthday - Birthday

5 When you export a segment to LianaMailer as a mailing list, you can choose here if you also want to export properties with the segment. 
6 Latest checkbox means that only the latest updated data will be taken into account. This means that every update overwrites the data that previously in the field. Otherwise, all the data from different events stays in the contact's information. You can, for example, see whether a specific contact has bought a certain product.
7 You can filter event types from the menu.
8 You can filter event types according to their state.
