All event-triggered programs incorporating SMS, mobile app messages, geofence or beacon activity require using a Universal Behavior (UB). You can use universal behaviors to add contacts to a program or as event criteria based on a specified action and rule.
If you plan to use universal behaviors in your program, configure them first: specify an app within the app group for UB attributes. To do this, will need to retrieve the app key from your mobile app developer.
