Attributes must have both a category and a value (description) in order for the record to be created. Note that an Individual Relationship Attributes mapping will create an attribute on the Individual Relationship. To create a Constituent Attribute on a Constituent being created or updated via an Individual Relationships import, you will need to add a Constituent Attribute and link it to the secondary Constituent mapped as the Individual Relationship.
The format of the description is determined by the setup in the Configuration of your Raiser’s Edge database. For more information about the distinctions between these different data types, please review the information listed under Constituent Attributes.
