  4. Select a data type (Visit or Visitor) and click Continue.
  5. (Required) In the Title field, enter a descriptive name.
    For event attributes, the Title can only contain letters, numbers, underscore, dollar sign, square brackets, and period. The name of an event attribute must match the name of the variable implemented.
    For visit and visitor attributes, you can use any ASCII character for Title other than double quotes.
