Issue

I am not sure what data types to use before uploading my data.

Cause

Depending on the data type that you use, Auto Insights will automatically adjust it to be a measure or segment initially.

Resolution

You can use an AutoField tool to update Data Types automatically which will likely detect any numeric fields. Then use of a Select tool to confirm these types.
