Best practices when activating audiences to email marketing destinations

Adobe recommends that you select a unique identifier from your union schema. This is the field that your user identities are keyed off of. Most commonly, this field is the email address, but it can also be a loyalty program ID or a phone number. Refer to the table below for the most common unique identifiers and their XDM field in the schema.

Unique Identifier XDM field in Unified Schema
