Data tags for Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn

  • 1.  Data tags for Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn

    Posted 01-15-2021 14:26
    Hello - 

    Is it possible to add data tags for a contact's social media accounts to emails and confirmation pages? For some reason, I can add anything else from their profiles EXCEPT these fields.

    If so, what is the appropriate tag to use?
    If not, why is this not possible? Are there any workarounds?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    P.S. As a side note, when will Instagram be added as a contact field?

    Hi Krysten - are you utilizing the Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter standard contact fields? We don't do much with social handles yet, but if you're asking registrants to fill out that info during the reg process (or have it as a read-only field), it seems like you would be able to display it back to them as part of the Registration Information widget in emails and/or as contact field widgets during the confirmation process of reg.

    Hi Krysten,

    I would have them write their social media handles in as registration questions and then use the "Invitee Answers" data tag option to pull in that information.

    Let me know how this works out for you!
