Create Target

Navigate to the Targets main page from the left nav and click on New Target in the top right
Then select the "Attentive Events"

General Setup

Once the Attentive Events has been selected, you must fill out information in the Target to enable the Daasity platform to extract, map and push the data into the Target
  1. 1.
    Give your new Target a name so you can find it in the Daasity platform by naming the Target in the red box below
  2. 2.
    The Target will create events in Attentive. In the blue box below enter the name that you want to use in Attentive for this target
attentive_name_event

Authorize Daasity

You need to authorize Daasity by clicking on the Authorize button which will redirect you to Attentive and ask you to Accept the integration

Audience Setup

Select the source for the Audience that you want to use for this Target by using the drop-downs below. For more information on how to setup the different Audience Sources see our article on Building Audiences
audience_add_source

Data Mapping

Once the Audience Source has been selected, the Daasity platform will extract a sample file to determine what data is returned from the extract and list the Source fields that are available to be mapped
Select or enter the Destination for each Source that you want mapped and pushed to the Attentive Events. If you leave a Destination blank then Daasity will not push that data element into the Target
The Attentive endpoint requires you to use a primary field (email or phone) to match the incoming data to a Subscriber. You will need to map one of our Source fields to either email or phone as an Attentive destination

Target Schedule

You need to schedule your target. Possible selections are:
  • Daily
  • Weekly (select the day of the week)
  • Monthly (select the day of the month)
The Target will run after the daily workflow is completed on the schedule selected
