You can choose from the following fields :
User defined fields
Pre-defined fields are fields set by default which are basic contact info in the sign up form / add lead page. Fields like lead email, first name, last name, company name, phone and etc. Choose a predefined field, a customized tag name, your mail default value and social default value. You’ve the freedom to define your own tag for your own understanding, reference and easy usability.
User defined fields can be used to address your leads, when you've created custom fields. If you want to use the custom fields in your email campaigns, then you need to create a lead custom merge tag and choose the field type as the custom field that you've created.
Can I edit predefined merge tags?
You can’t edit predefined merge tags. Instead, you can create your own lead custom merge tags and choose a pre-defined field. This way you can use your own customized merge tag in place of the predefined merge tag.
For example, If you're a seller you might find it appropriate to address your lead email as purchaser email. In this case, you can create a custom tag by choosing the predefined lead email field and giving it the name you prefer to address your leads.
I have imported some fields from other products using sync and I want to display them when I send campaigns to my mailing lists. How do I do this?
You can display the data from imported fields using custom fields and merge tags. Create a merge tag and choose the custom field that you have imported.
For example, you've imported a field "Skype ID" from Zoho CRM into a custom field named Skype_id. You will have to create a "SKYPE" merge tag for the custom field. Then you can use the merge tag to display the Skype ID in your campaigns.
1. From the Navigation toolbar, go to Settings.
2. Select Merge tags under Customization.
3. Click Lead custom tags and click Create new.
4. Your custom field will appear in the drop-down menu, choose that.
5. Enter the merge tag without space. You can see a small preview right there that would look something like this $[UD:CAMPAIGN EMAIL]$
6. Enter Mail default value and Social default value.
Mail default value is the filler value that will appear in email campaigns if a field is empty or not mapped with the necessary lead detail.
Social default value is the filler value that will appear in social campaigns or campaigns that are shared socially if a mapped field is empty. It is similar to mail default value, but for social campaigns.
For example, if the field $[UD:CITY]$ has no value and the social default value is City, then social campaigns will have City wherever the city merge tag is used.
