I've recently tried Constant Contact and its APIs as part of a requirement of one of my clients. During this process my client and I needed to make custom fields to map over to our in-house CRM via your APIs.
The issue that we came across was the amount of custom fields that we could make (only 15) which was very limited and constricting.
My client has heard that a new version that should be available very soon that may offer a different solution to our issue >>.Something called “tags”???
Q1. Are there any workarounds using the current version of the API?
Q2. If there are no workarounds, what are the other options to attain the same end result (to be able to create an undefined amount of custom fields) ?
Q3. What are these "tags" and can they be utilized as a solution to my current problem?

Please let me know if you have any other questions!
