Most used events and attributes by app
The Most Used Events and Attributes By App page is a useful tool to understand the drivers of your attribute and custom event data point consumption. For each app, you can find an estimated count of each specific custom attribute, profile attribute, and custom event for the selected time period as well as the percentage of that app’s attribute and event updates that were driven by that attribute or event.
Data breakdowns like these can help customers understand what specific data points are taking up large percentages of your allotment. We recommend customers monitor this information from time to time to make sure they aren’t spending data points in accidental and unnecessary ways.
