Hi I have this scenario that I couldn’t figure out so far:
Im implementing mixpanel for an existing web app. I call alias followed by mixpanel.people.set() on sign up to create user profiles. On Login I would only call identify() to link events to an already existing profile.
The problem happens with already pre-mixpanel signed up users. They won’t sign up so mixpanel.people.set() won’t be called and hence all existing signed up users pre-mixpanel won’t have a user profile. The only way I can think of is to check upon login if the user has a user profile in mixpanel and if not call mixpanel.people.set(), but how can I get this information whether a user already has a user profile in mixpanel?

about the people property if it something that can be also set on login then by all means do it. it won’t break anything.
