CSV Format for Group Attribute Imports
A group attribute stores one value for all members of a group. The value is identical for all group members. Group attributes are an ideal place to store data that changes frequently, and which is not recipient-specific.
It is not possible to import group attributes in an XML file that is used for contact data import. Group attributes must be imported in a separate XML file.
The files should not contain more than 1000 attributes. The attribute files can only have the data type string. Each attribute has a limit of 2000 characters per value. The file cannot include null (empty) values.
The handling of group attributes in Mapp Engage is not case-sensitive. For example, "customerID" and "Customerid" are treated as the same attribute.
You can view the name and values of the group attributes in each group in the Groups area. You can also create group attributes in the Mapp Engage interface in the Groups area.
The header must contain the following field names:
The remaining rows contain the name and value of each group attribute.
Sample CSV Structure
"group.PropertyName","group.PropertyValue" "Flight", "Frankfurt - Paris €299" "Hotel", "SuperFrenchLuxuryHotelChain" "Destination", "Paris"
- If a group attribute with that name exists in the group, Mapp Engage updates the value of the existing attribute.
If a group attribute with that name does not exist in the group, Mapp Engage creates a group attribute.
