Is Data Prep supposed to encode categorical variables?

I am not sure whether I should encode categorical variables with Data Prep.  I don't seem to find any built-in function for that.  Anyone can give me a pointer for that?

Thanks!

Hi Daniel - there is no need to do this outside of DataRobot when providing your training dataset.  DataRobot will take care of performing featurization tasks such as encoding categoricals, one hot encoding, missing value imputation, etc.

Thanks for the reply.  That sounds good to me.  I'll test out how it is done after I am done with the data.
