Hi one of the biggest errors I see when setting up report suites is actually a very basic principle.
It's all about consistency... things as simple as Naming conventions Like RSID_DEV and RSID_PROD.
Keep them aligned so its easy to match.
In the same vein also make sure all props, evars, events are also like matched between the 2. Saves alot of issues when trying to QA in DEV or stg.
