Custom Fields

I clicked 'Manage my custom fields' and all I got was the name of the field - that's it. How do I find out what is in these fields. I am an experienced developer and cannot get a custom field to show up in an email. I imported this information. Now how do I verify that what I imported is there?


is there a way to add an actual mailing address to the contact list?  When i upload a list from excel i would like to have the home address on the contact as well, is this possible?

Hello @TracyS786 and @csdavis,


Thank you for reaching out to the community! 


The best way to double check for custom fields is to click on the contact profile or if you would like to check all of them at once export your list. This will give you all of the contacts and any custom fields that you choose to export for easy review.


Adding these fields to the email body is very easy. You will need to access the insert menu while editing a block to use this option. For full instructions click here.


I hope that this was helpful!


Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
