Defining Field Availability

Once the fields have been created in your project, you have the possibility to display them in some of the application interfaces. Configuring the availability of the fields allows you to control where they appear, so your project structure is clearer. The 5 display options are: 

  • search
  • lists 
  • segmentation
  • contact profile
  • preview and tests

For example, you could choose to display the name and preferences of your contacts in the search results, but not their gender or address. By default, the required fields (last name, first name and email) and the primary key fields are set to be displayed in the 5 interfaces, but you may change this, except for the contact profile. To see concrete examples for every option, check the results section.

Before Starting

In order to edit the availability of the fields, you need to have permission granted. If it is not your case, please ask your account manager.
