Meta Data

Creating Custom Attributes/Meta Data for a Customer Profile

In Commerce7, setting up meta data is a way to collect data that is relevant to your business. After creating Customer Meta Data they will appear on customer profiles and will be included in the Customer export.

Once you have set up meta data for Customers, you can use them as one of the conditions when creating an customer tag. Learn more here; How Do I Create Customer Tags?

  3. Select a Title for your attribute.
    For an example, we are collecting 'Spouse's Name'.
  4. Code is just a reference point for doing API calls. You do not need to change this, but you can if you'd like. 
  5. Next select your Data Type. There are 11 different data types available.
  6. Decide whether or not you want your attribute to be a Required field. If it's required, it will need to be entered in order for the product to be saved.
  7. Finally you can set the Sort Order. The sort order determines the display order your Customer attributes will appear.
  8. Click Save Customer Meta Data when you're finished building your attribute.
