At Trackingplan, we know that effective communication is key, especially if you want to avoid all these little misunderstanding gaps that usually lead to implementation bugs.
Digital Analytics and user tracking implementations are especially prone to bugs and breakages, integrations fail easily and invisibly, and with so many teams involved in the data collection process, you may not even realize until errors have easily slipped through the cracks, compromising the integrity of your data and your results.
Data collection is a team sport, and this is exactly why one of our missions at Trackingplan is to bridge the communication gap between product, business, and marketing people. That is why, in this article, we’ll explore how Trackingplan’s Notes Templates overcome the not-so-easy challenge of seamless communication between different organizational divisions.
Bridging the Communication Gap
Shared understanding is key to ensuring your digital analytics, acquisition, pixels, and campaigns are accurately collected, responsibly managed, and integrated efficiently across teams and platforms.
However, many data-driven organizations experience this problem as they begin to grow their data and people, making information and data sources scattered and siloed across departments and data repositories respectively.
To help teams across departments adopt accessible and easy-to-understand definitions for all the members involved in the data collection process, Trackingplan’s customized notes allow you to add descriptions and labels on your events, properties, and acquisition data to ensure everybody clearly understands all the necessary details.
Moreover, Tackingplan’s notes section also supports #labels, which can be used to create categories to easily search them in the Advanced Search Filter, or even create Personalized Digests to ensure every department is aware of its responsibilities to encourage the ownership of every squad in the analytics generated by their developments.

With Trackingplan's Notes Template, you can define the parameters required when filling out event descriptions.
