What Are Field Tag Replacements?

 

When building a post on the Manage Posts page, it is common to use field tags to pull information from the Velocify lead into the post, such as First Name, Last Name, or lead status. These field tags are found by selecting the View Field Tags link at the top right of the page while building the post. All custom fields in your account will have a corresponding field tag, along with many system fields, like status, campaign, or date added.

 

With these field tags, it's not only possible to pull data from the lead when building a post but also manipulate the data when it is placed in a post. This is possible using replacement field tags.

 

When Would I Use Field Tag Replacements?

Below are some common use cases for field tag replacements.

 

  • Use Case 1 -- You need to send a post to a third party dialer that contains phone numbers, but the dialer will only accept numbers in a ten-digit format, without any parenthesis around the area code or dashes between the numbers.
  • Use Case 2 -- You need to send the lead's address to a third party system, but that address isn't always in the same field. If you are sending a purchase lead, the address will be in the Property Address field, but if it is a refinance then it will be in the Address field.
  • Use Case 3 -- You need to send a URL or other value that contains special characters, like an ampersand "&" or carrot "^" symbol, to a third party company. To do so, that company requests the value to be sent in an HTTP-encoded format.
