Setting Up Feature Types
On this page we will guide you how to set up and use Feature Types.
Navigate to the Feature Types from the Menu --> FT Singularity Model --> Settings --> Feature Types.
From the Feature Type page, select the New Feature Type CTA from the top-right hand corner to create your own Feature Type.
Once inside a new or existing Feature Type, you will find the general details.
Name - Give your Feature Type a descriptive name.
Description - Write a description that will help you and your team understand the purpose of the Feature Type.
Is Ranked? - Select this check-box if the different classes belonging to the Feature type should have an order or rank. For example, when considering monetary value or amounts, usually they will be ranked from the lowest to the highest value.
You will only be able to select the 'Is Ranked' setting once you have created at least one class.
An example of a Feature Type that has ranked classes is Deposit Bracket. The lowest amount (€0 - €10) has the lowest rank or order (1).
Note: These classes are ranked, meaning that the values have a rank or order that is relative to the other classes. €0 - €10 is ranked as number 1, the lowest number and therefore the lowest rank. This means that the higher the deposit amount, the player will belong to a higher-ranking class.
An example of a Feature Type that does not have ranked classes is Channel. Email, SMS, Push Notification etc. are unrelated to each other and are equal communication channels.
The reason for ranking the Feature Type classes becomes apparent when using them inside segmentation. You will want to be able to segment on segmentation fields such as; First deposit and to be able to select brackets such as; between 50 - 100.
Each Feature Type must have at least one Class. To create a new class simply enter a name, slug and description. Select the New Class CTA from the right-hand side and enter the following information;
Name - Give your class a name.
Slug - Assign a slug name for your Feature Type class.
Note 🧠: The Slug name is important when writing the database queries in - Player Features - Manage Movements - Time-Based Queries.
It is important that the slug name matches exactly when referring to classes in the queries.

Description - Write a description to make sure the class information is clearly stated.
The settings entered on the Feature Type will be visible when it is used to create a Player Feature. All the classes will be listed inside the Player Feature as possible outcomes or states for a player to exist in.
For example, a player who logs in and makes a real-money transaction today can be classified as Active Today, as in the image above.
Below 👇 is an example of the classes that have been set up for the Lifestage Feature Type in the FT Singularity Model. These classes do not have an order and are therefore not ranked.
Below👇 is an example of the classes that have been set up for the Player Balance Bracket Feature Type in the FT Singularity Model. These classes do have an order and have been ranked from 1st to 5th ranking.
