Hello,

 

If a user comes through a desktop and the same user comes through a mobile device, will he/she be assigned two seprate client ids? And, if yes, is there a way to track that its the same user?

Yes and Yes.   If the user authenticates or self identifies in some way you can use the User ID feature.
