Datashift supports 5 different data types:

1. Date

2. Time

Stores data as time.

3. String

A set of alphanumeric characters represented as text. Example: 123 My Street Name, Weather Station 7.

4. Number

When uploading your data, Datashift will automatically identity the data type for each column in your file. These settings can be changed if labelled incorectly.
