Calling same event from both client and server?

We are currently calling the same track('Lead Created') event from both the client and server. It is showing up as two events in Mixpanel. (see image)

I know you can always look at unique events --- but I am wondering if there are any downsides to this set up?

@christian123123 The only down side I can see is your team who is running reports might get confused by the double naming of events. For example, I can see someone asking "Why can I see the property $city on the Lead Created event but not this other Lead Created event?".

I think creating a tracking plan for your events and properties might be useful so then you can share the tracking plan with other people in your company and they won't be as confused as to why some events collect default properties and why others do not. There is also this useful community post on a Guide to Naming events here.

Hope this helps!
