By default, Sherlock ingests all user or account traits as Strings. But you may be sending Sherlock traits that are Numbers or Date / times * and would like to filter, sort, and/or segment by these different trait types.

You can do this by setting a specific Data Type for these traits - basically telling Sherlock how you would like these traits to be treated.

Mapping your traits

To set specific Data Types, simply to go the Data Types tab in Sherlock Settings (you can access Sherlock Settings from the top right icon):

From here you can, set custom Data Types for each of your user and account traits:

Select the Data Type from the drop down menu:

Don't forget to save your mappings:

Voila! Now you can filter, sort, and segment your data using your traits in the intended format.

**In order to filter, sort, and segment based on a Date / Time setting, the values for these traits must be sent in standard ISO format (ie - 2022-04-12T18:00:29Z).
