Template Variables

Updated 2 weeks ago by Ionuț Colceriu

Variables are dynamic pieces of information, such as your name or today's date, that you can insert with templates.

If you address someone in your template, you can use a variable to avoid changing the recipient’s name every time you insert the template.

For example, if you want to address the correct recipient in your template, your template content would look like this:

Hello ________,
And then the rest of the template follows here...

You can use a template variable for the recipient's first name:

  1. Create a new template, or edit an existing template
  2. Move your cursor to where you want the variable to be inserted
  3. Click on "Insert Variable" in the Template Content toolbar
  4. Click "To: First Name" from the drop-down menu
  5. Your template should look like this:
    Hello {{to.first_name}},
    And then the rest of the template follows here...

By using this template, if you are writing to Jane Doe, the template content will display:

Hello Jane,
And then the rest of the template follows here...

Nice Job!

  • To

    • {{to.email}}
    • {{to.name}}
    • {{to.last_name}}
    • {{to.first_name}}

  • {{choice 'hello, hi, hey'}} - a random choice.

If the Template variable value is missing (e.g. no First Name for the contact) the variable will be replaced with an empty string.
