Each custom field you create will create:

  • A custom field that shows up on every Contact (if the field is a Contact custom field) or Organization (if the field is an Organization custom field)
  • A webform element for inputting the custom data
  • A dynamic field for displaying an organization or contact's data in an email or Landing Page 
  • A query element for use in the query engine
The format of the dynamic field for custom fields:

%CONTACT.ACCOUNT.CUSTOM_FIELDS().FORMATTED_VALUE%

%CONTACT.CUSTOM_FIELDS().FORMATTED_VALUE%

Depending on the custom field type, the formatted version will be styled with HTML.

 

Most custom fields can be referenced directly by their custom fields name as ActiveDEMAND will automatically create dynamic fields for all custom fields.

 

Example:

If you have a custom field called 'Deal Stage' and you are looking for the value:

%CONTACT.CUSTOM_FIELDS(Deal Stage).FORMATTED_VALUE%

 

To build a custom field, browse to your Field Management

Querying Custom Fields

Using the query engine to find custom fields, you will need to reference the field name and the field value.
