Append to a contact property?


#1

I would like to append to a contact’s property vs overwriting it. How can this be done? I’d rather not make a separate api call to get the contact’s current property value only to turn around and make another api call to update it with data I compose locally. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you

Hi @jamjud34,

It’s not currently possible to append a value or option to a property on a contact record. We do keep a record of any previous values, and those historical values can be used in lists and workflows, but if you need to append and keep the current values, you’d need to pull the existing value, append your new value, then update the contact with the full updated list of values.
