Hi there!

I’m trying to create a profile property and running into a problem.  Hoping you can help.

I have a list set up triggered by an email opt in on a landing page.

At the 3rd email in the flow I want to give the customer a button to sign up for a waitlist.  I have built this out and used the code provided here is what I have:

{% update_property_link 'waitlist' 'true' 'https://waitlist.glampingoutsidethebox.com/p/survey_results' %}

When I preview and test, it I get a place holder message one one computer.  I also tested it on another computer and it tells me the site is not secure.  Can you take a look and tell me if I have the code incorrect?

What I’m trying to do is once they click on the waitlist button it will separate them from that list and put them into a new list.  What is the best way to do this?

Thank you!

Hi there,

 

Your code looks good to me, but I would suggest sending a preview email to yourself in order to test. Since the functionality of that Django filter is to update a customer’s profile, you may need to actually send an email in order to test.

 

Additionally, I wanted to provide a quick definition of this filter for anyone reading who might not be sure of the intended purpose.

 

update_property_link

Use this tag to create a link which will add a profile property to a profile. On addition of the property, redirect the user to either the default Klaviyo thank you page or the supplied url. update_property_link takes at least three arguments: the profile property, the value, and a redirect link.

 

Example

{% update_property_link ‘PROFILE_PROPERTY’ ‘Profile Property Value’ ‘https://google.com’ %}

 

 

 

 

Best,

I need to do this too but am not very familiar with properties. Can someone please tell me how to even create the property and then the value?

Hey @embalmskincare,

Thank you for your follow up question on how to create custom profile properties and their associated value. They are a great way to customize your target audiences.

 

Custom properties are fields that you can use to store information about the contacts in your account. Here are several examples of how you might use custom properties:

  • To collect additional information about your contacts, such as gender, size, coupon code, etc.
  • To collect contacts' preferences, such as email frequency, type of content, etc.
  • To collect contacts' responses to a questionnaire

You can collect virtually any type of information you'd like about a contact using custom properties, and then later use this information to tailor content, create segments, or filter flows. There is no limit to the number of custom properties that can be added to one profile.

About Custom Properties talks through how to add custom properties and how to use them once created. @Johndsn33 has a community post that asks this very question with multiple responses on best practices using profile properties. 

I hope this helps give you a strong start into creating custom profile properties! Thank you for being a member of the Klaviyo Community!
