RTCDP Customers can now enable multiple Data Prep-enabled report suites for Profile.

CJA customers who ingest multiple report suites via the Analytics Source Connector now have a means to deconflict column differences between report suites. For example, if “Search Term” is stored in eVar1 in one report suite and in eVar2 in another report suite, using Data Prep you can extend the Analytics field group with a new column that merges the values from the two eVars.
