How to Edit List Mappings


Once you have uploaded and mapped a Contact List to be used in a campaign, you may decide that you’d like to map additional fields that you didn’t include in your initial file upload.  For example, perhaps you’d like to add a field to a Web Form associated with the list.  You can easily map new fields by editing your list’s mapping.

 

To Edit a List’s Field Mapping:

From the main navigation bar, click Lists:

listmap1

 

You’ll navigate to your Lists Page.  We’re going to add fields to the B2B List:

listmap2

 

If we edit the B2B List and look at the first contact record, we’ll see that there currently are no custom fields mapped:

listmap6

 

To map new fields, click the Action button to the right of the list and then select Field Mappings:

listmap4

 

All of the Standard Fields – such as name, address and email – previously mapped for this list will be marked with a check.  Any custom fields that have been previously mapped to our Variable Data Fields will be listed underneath Your Field Names:

listmap8

 

To map any additional Standard Fields, place a check in the box next to the field.  To map any additional Custom Fields, enter the field names in the boxes provided under Your Field Names.  You have Variable Data 1 – 35  available to use for your custom data fields. In the example below, we have mapped Company, Occupation and Mobile.  We have also added 2 new custom fields – Industry and Loan Amount. Industry has been mapped to Variable Data 1 and Loan Amount has been mapped to Variable Data 2.  Remember to click Save when done editing your mapping:

listmap12

 

Now, if we look at the first contact record, we’ll see that the new fields have been mapped and can be added to any List Web Form used with this contact list:

listmap11

After you’ve mapped the new fields, they will be available to be written to new forms that you create for Lead Generation or Personalized Campaigns. They’ll also display in reports.
