If a $source value is -6, what does this mean?

Hello @AnnaE ,

It looks like the -6 is actually tracking a segment you have set up. I would review your account’s data and then report back if there is some error.

 

Thank you!

@alex.hong I found this thread while doing some research on the $source values for myself too.  It turns out, some of the $source value has a lookup table here in this reference below. 

In this case, a $source value of -6 is most likely “Manually Initiated.” Sharing this here for future reference if somebody stumbles on this!:

Has anyone also found information on what a positive number may indicate too? I have quite a few $source values listed as numbers such as 21, 113, 130, etc.

 

Thanks!
