Pretty Names for Parameters and Attributes
One of the best practices when working with UTMs to get clean and consistent analytics data is to define your UTM taxonomy across your campaigns and teams.
In UTM.io, this means your team has a pre-defined set of parameter and attribute values to choose from when building UTMs in the link builder.
In the new and improved UTM.io platform, Pretty Names allows you to clarify the meaning of specific parameters and attribute values to your team members, making it understandable right within the link builder. This will remove any chance of them making mistakes that lead to inconsistent reporting.
Pretty Name for Parameters
Assume you want to make sure that your team members know the UTM Medium - CPC means Cost Per Click.
You can use a Pretty Name to easily clarify this without altering the parameter value in the link builder.
Pretty name for Attributes
For example, let's assume in your UTM taxonomy document you have defined the following location attribute values;
CAA represents Canada
CA represents California
With these similar abbreviations, your team members may easily get confused and mistakenly use one in place of the other when building links.
You can use Pretty Names to eliminate possibility of such mistakes in UTM.io link builder by distinctively designating that CAA is Canada and CA is California.
