Hi everyone!
Can tell me please how is data displayed on dashboards? i mean type of events: Lifetime or Flow? (Are they attributed to the date of the event or the date of the installation?)
For example, we are looking at a purchase on May 15th that was made by a user who installed the app on April 10th.
In Amplitude dashboard, will the purchase be shown on May 15 (at the time of the purchase) or April 10 (at the time of the user's arrival)?+

Hey @aman.igdirov 

Events are charted as per the event time that they occurred at. This will also depend on the time zone that your project is set to. If you have both your app install and purchase event instrumented in Amplitude, then they will show up on the charts for that user on April 10th and May 15th respectively. If only one of those events is instrumented ( let’s say app install ), then only app install will show up on April 10th.

Let me know if I have interpreted your use case correctly. Hope this helps.
