Numeric 2 Classifications

Numeric 2 classifications provide custom, flexible metrics that you can import into the Adobe Marketing Cloud via the importer.

A common way to use numeric 2 classifications is for numeric variables that change over time for different items, such as the cost of goods sold. In admin, you can create classifications on the Conversion Classification page, and then use the importer to export a file, make edits, and then import the file back in to Adobe. After importing the data, you can use the numeric classifications when creating calculated metrics.

Important: Analysis Workspace and Ad Hoc Analysis do not support Numeric 2 classifications.

The following table illustrates the differences among classification types:
