Mapping properties


Models have mappings that let the system understand the data in a better way. It's basically a list of string to dimension pair as follows:

    event_timestamp: occurred_at # dimension name
    user_id: anonymous_id


If this model is a time-series data, you can set the value that points to a dimension with the timestamp type, and the Explores will have a date picker and enforce the user to set the value of the date picker in the UI.


If your model represents user data such as a customer event type (ex: pageview or transaction), you can set the this mapping dimension the unlock features such as funnel and retention explores.
