Attribute definitions are comprised of three primary components: Tags, Prompts, and “Default” text.

A tag identifies the attribute and allows us to categorize it “behind the scenes”. Prompts can act as a set of instructions and ask us to input unique data that relates to the attribute itself. Default text can be used as the start of a “sequence” of blocks that define the attribute’s formatting and “starting point”.
