What is the Validation Component?

The Validation component allows you to set conditional statements that will determine how the messaging platform will interact with a specific campaign participant.

The Validation component checks against an individual’s subscription status or metadata value to define what message, campaign or component to send.

**Note: this is not a component you use on its own.**

For example, you can use the validation component to stack on top of a sweepstakes component:

*To add Validation component to a campaign:

  • Select “Validation” from the component selection menu.Validation_1.png
  • Next, add your first conditional statement. You may choose from the following:

    • If the subscriber is on a certain list, use the “is on” operator and select appropriate list:

  • If the subscriber is not on a certain list, use the “is not on” operator and select the appropriate list:

More Scenarios:

  • If the subscriber contains a specific value for a metadata field, select the "contains" operator, specify the appropriate metadata field and enter the value you'd like to check for
  • If the subscriber does not contain a specific value for a metadata field, select the "does not contain" operator, specify the appropriate metadata field and enter the value you'd like to check for
  • If the subscriber contains any value for a specific field, select the "contains value for" operator and enter the appropriate metadata field.
  • If the subscriber does not contain any value for a specific field, select the "does not contain value for" operator and enter the appropriate metadata field.

Once you’ve set the conditional statement, you may choose the action that should be taken if the condition is met or not met for the subscriber. The options include: 

  • Send Message: The copy entered will be sent to the subscriber
  • Send Campaign: The campaign selected will be send to the subscriber
  • Deliver Next Component: The next component in the campaign (stacked below) will be sent to the subscriber
  • End Campaign: The campaign will be terminated
