How do I differentiate dummy datasets from real-world datasets?

Asked 2 years ago

Good morning peeps. I made the error of not removing the dummy datasets used to test the Shopify store I developed before it went live. The store has now started to generate real-world datasets and I'm not sure which data was the dummy data. I need to remove these as soon as possible so that the store statistics can be accurate and not distorted. If you know of any easy way to do this, please do share!

Dummy datasets are computer generated. Therefore, you can customize them to a greater extent. Moreover, if you use an intuitive app, you'll have a dataset sheet of the related test data. You can use it for distinction purposes. Moreover, an automated app like Simple Sample Data from Egnition might help eliminate the dummy data once you are done.
