Hey, Mixpanelers! I'm having some trouble re-assigning my users' Distinct IDs. In a perfect world, I'd like each user's Distinct ID to be their email address.
Here are the steps I followed:
1. When a user creates an account, I call mixpanel.alias(EMAIL_FROM_INPUT)
2. When a user logs in, I call mixpanel.identify(EMAIL_FROM_INPUT)
The good news:
Once a user logs in, every event they trigger in Live View has a Mixpanel property called User ID attached. That User ID is set to their correct email address.
With the exception of my own Distinct ID—which is correctly set to my email address—every user's Distinct ID is still the default string of numbers and characters.
Any ideas about what I might be getting wrong? Thanks so much!
