  • Sync status – Available statuses include Active which will begin syncing leads into your Engaging Networks account or Inactive with will not sync leads.
  • Attributes – Attributes are descriptive “tags” applied to pages and emails that you build in the software. You can then query on that attribute and supporters who participated on a page or interacted with an email with an attribute will be returned.
  • Origin source – ‘Origin Source’ can be stored in a supporter’s data record to help identify where the record originated from and compare different channels on performance.
  • Tracking – Tracking parameters are values that can be appended to page URLs and are stored as part of the transaction.
  • Campaign References 1-5 – External Reference fields 1-5 are values stored as part of the transaction. They are often used for UTM codes.

Once the sync is active and leads are submitted, you can use query builder to query on the submissions under the “Advocacy” tab which is represented with a megaphone icon. The form names will be listed with LEADGEN and you can use this to search for the forms. The submissions will create DCF transactions.
