Configure Lead and Campaign Fields

  • The process for configuring Lead and Campaign Fields is the same.

  • Lead Fields are the fields that store data about a Lead. As part of your implementation, the default Lead Fields were added to your system including; the Leads name, address, education, and employment fields. These fields are marked with a [STD] tag in their name.

  • Campaign Fields are fields that store data about a Campaign. As part of your implementation, the default Campaign Fields were added to your system including; the job title, benefits information, and created by details. These fields are marked with a [STD] tag in their name.

  • To add custom Lead Fields or Campaign Fields to the Lead or Campaign Profile, see Configure the Lead and Campaign Profiles documentation.
