What are the 4 attribution models available in App + Web?

You are here:

The Attribution models currently available in App + Web are the same as Firebase which are different to what you find in Universal Analytics. From what I can see there is also no option to create a custom model to suit your organisation’s needs.

You can currently select your attribution type in the main reporting UI by clicking on customize report icon and then choosing the Attribution Model of your choice from the drop down.
