If you have a list of items you will reference in multiple Campaigns, you can use Application Attributes to store these in one convenient place for use throughout an Application. This can save you a great deal of time manually adding these to each Campaign, and also reduces the risk of human error when adding manually every time.
To create an Application Attribute, you’ll need Administrator access to your Talon.One account.
Creating Application Attributes
First, you will need to create a new Attribute in the Developer Section of Talon.One. This Attribute should be associated with the Application entity and will typically be a List of Strings (i.e.Product IDs), List of Dates (i.e. Holidays), or List of Locations (i.e. Geolocations of stores).
While creating the Attribute, you can add Suggested values for the Attribute, but note that you will have to re-enter them later when specifying values for the Application.
Specifying the Attribute’s Values for an Application
Once the Attribute is created, navigate to the Settings page of an Application, click the Add Custom Attribute button and select your new Application Attribute.
Now you may enter the values you would like to use throughout that Application. If you’re adding many values (list of store IDs, product SKUs, etc), note that you can copy and paste from a spreadsheet if the values are comma-separated. If not, you can use the Concatenate function in Excel or Google sheets to append a comma, then copy and paste the column into the input field in Talon.One.
Using an Application Attribute in Campaigns
With the Attribute created and its values set, you can now use the Application Attribute in Cart Item Filters and Rules just like any other attribute.
As with other Attributes, note that the Attribute types must align –– for an Application Attribute of type List of Strings, any other Attribute you evaluate against it must be a String (not a Number, Boolean, etc). Likewise, the evaluator must be “contains,” “does not contain,” “is one of,” or “is not one of” to evaluate a single Attribute against a List.
