What are Traits?
Previously called Parameters, Traits are characteristics you send to Simpo from your product about your users. They are the “adjectives” that describe your users. Examples include things like Name, Email Address, Company, Role, Created Date, etc.
Why send user Traits to Simpo?
One of the powerful features of Simpo is the ability to specifically target users based on who they are or where they are in their product journey. For example, you may want to target “new developer admins”, for which you would need to know “created date,” “role,” and “team.” All of these are user Traits you can send to Simpo.
Which Traits should I send?
Here’s a set of recommendations to start sending first. You can always add more later as needed, but (as you probably know), engineering time can be hard to come by! You can make a copy of the recommended Traits by clicking here.
Used to identify a user beyond Simpo's default anonymous ID
Can be used for various identification.
Created Date (user)
For knowing how long a user has been using your product.
For segmenting content.
Example: trial, paid. Helpful for converting users.
Example: standard, enterprise. Helpful for driving plan upgrades.
Example: admin, standard.
Example: marketing, sales. Or any other way you segment your users.
Example: state, zip, country, etc. (use multiple properties). Target on where your customer lives.
If users can be on different versions of your application they may need to see different content.

For multi-language applications.
To remind users to renew.
For segmenting by assigned CSM or Account Manager.
