Can't find a data tag that suits your needs? You can always create your own. Custom data tags come in two varieties, content block and single text tags, and each type can be account-wide or event-specific.


Creating a Simple Text Tag

Intended for brief strings of letters, numbers, and symbols, simple text tags have a 50 character limit. They're best used for frequently changing data (e.g. total clients or annual revenue).

1 Access the Custom Tag Details page. Begin by clicking Admin in the top right. Hover over Account and, under Account, click Custom Data Tags.

2 Create the tag. Click Create Custom Tag, then ensure Simple Text is selected.
Enter a name and data tag code. Whatever you type in the Value textbox is what will appear when the data tag populates.

Once you're done, click Save.
 
NOTE: Event-specific simple text tags can be added under Promotion & Communication > Email > Custom Data Tags.

Creating a Content Block Tag

Content block tags allow for more versatility with a much roomier 5,000 character limit and the ability to contain links, images, and even other data tags. Use them to automate entry of content you routinely reuse throughout multiple events, emails, or registration paths (e.g. speaker biographies, disclaimers, or cancellation policies).

1 Access the Custom Tag Wizard. Begin by clicking Admin in the top right. Hover over Account and, under Account, click Custom Data Tags.


2 Create the tag. Click Create Custom Tag, then ensure Content Block is selected. Enter a name and data tag code.

Since a content block can be inserted in both HTML and plain text emails, you will need to define two versions. Whatever you type in the Value textbox is what will appear when the data tag populates. Click HTML... to access the HTML Editor. Type out the content that you want to display in the tag, then click OK.

Click the Copy from HTML Values button, and the text you entered in the HTML Editor will be pulled into the Plain Text value. Images and links will not appear.
 
Once you're done, click Save.
 
NOTE: Event-specific content block tags can be added under Promotion & Communication > Email > Custom Data Tags.
Inserting Custom Data Tags Within the HTML Editor

1 Access the HTML Editor. The HTML Editor can be accessed throughout the application by clicking Edit Section or the HTML button. It’s also built into various pages related to editing emails.

2 Insert the data tag. Click the Insert tab, then clickUser-added imagein the Content section. Select Account from the first dropdown and Custom Tag from the second.

 
NOTE: Event-specific custom data tags are listed in the Event category.
Check the box to the left of the data tag you want to insert. If there are multiple data tags, click the  User-added image to expand the list first.

Click OK, then Save. If the HTML Editor appeared in a separate window, be sure to save on the original page as well.

3 Check your work.
To see how the addition of the data tag affects the rest of the content, click the Preview tab if you're editing an email, or Preview in the top right if you're editing a webpage.
