Account data structure tagged field list

The Account Data Structure contains a list of fields, some of which are ‘tagged’.

What is a tagged data field?

These are fields containing certain pre-defined types of data in the database. These data fields are considered ‘tagged’ and so we know exactly where this data lives and how this data is to be used.

For example, when your ‘Post code’ field is tagged as ‘Postcode’, then our email-to-target tools know to use this field to lookup the targets for the action. Or, the field that is tagged as Email Address will be used to uniquely identify the supporter, and is also where thank you emails are sent to. There are several other kinds of tagged fields. 

The database also contains ‘untagged’ data fields, which are essentially empty placeholders that you can use to create and define your own field types, relating to your organizations’ particular needs and goals. For example, you might want to store your own offline database ID, to make it more easy to match supporters between the two systems. Because this field is not used by the Engaging Networks platform for any special purpose, it would be added as an untagged field. Untagged fields have a maximum length of 2000 characters.
