  • Custom Fields

    This topic will cover everything related to the Custom fields. For effective email marketing custom fields can play an important role. This can help you not only to personalize the content of your newsletter but also assist you to gather vital and important information about your subscribers.

    There are two types of custom fields supported by the system:

    1) Local custom fields [added specifically for a particular list]

    2) Global custom fields [added globally and available for all the lists]

    * Note that global custom fields once added can not be changed to local custom fields.

    custom fields 1

    Every custom field has a unique numeric id associated to it - this numeric ID will help you when you want to personalize your email newsletter content.

    custom fields 2

    On this screen we will have to go through several options for creating custom fields. The options are described in detail below.

    Creating Custom Fields

    Name of your custom field
    You can select the field type you want to use - this will determine the html form element type and can also limit the data that can be saved under this field.

    You can use the following types of the fields.
    * Single Line * Paragraph text * Multiple Choice * Drop Down * Checkboxes * Date Field * Time Field * Hidden Field
    Default Value
    In some of the field types you can define the default value for the field so that it will be displayed to the user.
    Validation can help you validate the input and ensure that the user is not entering or populating it with an incorrect or random value.

    You can either disable the validation for the field or choose from 6 validation methods built into the system..
    1. Numbers 1. Letters 1. Numbers and Letters 1. Email Address 1. URL 1. Custom
    You can also define the field visibility - whether the field is available for the subscribers under their subscriber area or it is only visible by the List Admin.
    Make this field mandatory
    Use this option to make the field mandatory to fill in.
    Force unique value entry
    Tick this option to force a unique value entry, unless the field is populated by the end user with a unique value it will not allow the user to go further.
    Make this custom field available across all your lists

    Using this option you can make the custom field globally available for all your lists.
