  1. Under the Label column, you may rename an event or event property. Events or event properties without a label will default to their original name. 
  2. Under the Definition column, you may add a description to an event. Definitions are useful for new users, and/or when your project contains similarly named events. 
  3. Under the Category column, you may create categories and assign events and event properties to them. Creating categories helps keep your Data Panel organized. 

Joining Events
