What are Dimensions?

Dimensions are used when you want to filter and/or add specific information to a Contact. A Dimension can be any information (Text, Date, Number, Values) you want to include. When you create a Dimension, it will appear in the Dimensions section when you Add a Contact/Subscriber.

  1. Click Contacts/Dimensions.

  2. Click Create Dimension.

  • Date
  • Number
  • Values

If you selected Values as the Type, you have the option to enable multiselection. This means you can select multiple values when adding a Contact/Subscriber. To enable multiselection, click the Enable multiselection toggle once.
