In Adobe Campaign, profiles are used by default to define the main target of messages.
To create or update a profile in Campaign, you can:
- Import a profile list from a file, via a workflow
- Collect data online, via landing pages
- Create bulk via REST API
- Synchronize profiles from Microsoft Dynamics
- Enter data using the graphical interface screens, as explained below
As an example, to create a new profile directly in the user interface, follow the steps below:
