I have that scenario: I track events server-side, and send always the user-agent. In Mixpanel I will create different Insights to exclude all events with bots, others with crawler, etc.
To have only very few places for excluding all the necessary property-values, I created custom events.
It is working fine - but is that a good practice, as I am new with Mixpanel?
I already found out, that custom events behave unexpected for me: They are not something like master-filters who are filtering the existing events (also those in the past), but only from the day of creation start to collect the matching events.
Is there a better function existing for what I want to do?
And now I found a new entry in my user-agent list - I wanted to add that propert-value in my custom-event-description of my custom-events, where can I do that? Or is it impossible, as it is against the event-concept?
Thanks for any help and ideas!
EDIT: By accident I found out, that I can edit customer-event-definitions in other views, like when I select events in "Segmentation". But I was expecting to do that in "Lexicon".
