This section of the tab generates a hash value to define required fields on form pages for Mapp Engage.
Form pages are landing pages that Mapp Engage hosts. Contacts use form pages to carry out actions such as subscription to a newsletter or a profile data change.
Mapp Engage embeds the Mandatory Parameter Settings parameter (MPS) on the landing page to regulate required input fields. For more information, see Landing Pages.
These required fields are not required fields for the Mapp Engage group, the information is stored only in the hash value. MPS parameters can be generated and embedded into landing pages at any time.
Encoded Parameter: After an MPS parameter is created, the hash value with the attribute value that is passed to Mapp Engage displays in this area.
When this area is closed, the hash value is no longer displayed. To record the exact use of the parameter later, save the parameter and the fields that are associated with it in another location. For example, in the group description.
To transfer the attribute with the MPS parameter in Mapp Engage, you must use the name that is listed in the Attribute Reference . For more information, see Attribute References.
Generate MPS: This button creates an MPS parameter that is displayed in the Encoded Parameter area. The parameter must be inserted into the form of the landing page.
If the MPS parameter is passed to Mapp Engage by HTTPS request, the call is constructed as follows:
The email address of the subscriber.
The identification number of the group within the Mapp Engage system.
The process that is carried out with the HTTPS request. For example, a subscription request.
The type of subscription. If true, an invitation is sent to the new member. The new member must acMapp Engaget the invitation to complete the subscription process. This type of subscription is called a double opt-in.
The value that is stored in the first name attribute of the contact.
The value that is stored in the last name attribute of the contact.
The MPS parameter.
