View history of events for each anonymous user (Distinct ID)

Hey! My app doesn’t have signup/login, but i’m still correctly seeing different users united by their Distinct IDs: https://illia.d.pr/6WxHX4. But whenever I click on the ID URL (for example https://mixpanel.com/report/2120705/explore#user?distinct_id=EA6A4052-CCC8-4F8B-BE5F-D66C2793605D) I see the empty screen with ‘We don't have any data! You haven't sent us any user profiles yet. Don't worry: it's easy to get set up.’ info.

 

Any tips on how to view that data? I want to see the history of events for each user. Thanks.

Your problem might be similar to mine. I noticed it didn’t show user data until I added some data to the Properties. E.g.

tracker.people.set('Drew', {}) # DOES NOT WORK
tracker.people.set('Drew', {'id' => 'Drew'}) # WORKS

 

Good luck

Thanks Bashar. I was able to solve it by clicking on the user icon all the way on the left: https://illia.d.pr/dbXWch

Hi @arkushi —

 

It seems like you found the information you were looking for — for anyone else stumbling across this post, it is worth calling out that in order to see  user profile data you must send data to Mixpanel with a people set call as @Bashar pointed out, described here.

 

Here is more detail on User profile data vs Event data.

 

Hope these help!
