I have created a simple automated email and in the configure area it's asking for a subscriber Date Attribute, but in the drop down menu it says, "No attributes defined". How do I go about defining attributes and where do I go in Marketing cloud to do so?

Please go through the documentation and create the custom attribute.


Create the relevant subscriber attribute :

  • Click Subscribers.
  • Click Profile Management or Preference Management.
  • Click Create.
  • Define the properties for this attribute.
    • A Custom date attribute can be created accordingly
  • Click OK in the Attribute Properties dialog box when done.
  • Update the subscribers value for this newly created Attribute if needed.
  • Please quote some relevant information from the links as link only answers are too prone to getting made irrelevant if the links break. See How to Answer
