How to Use Your Custom Field in Your Email

In your email editor, place the cursor where you want to add the dynamic date and time and click 'Personalize':

This will insert your custom field placeholder into your email:

When you send yourself the broadcast email, you will see that the placeholder has been replaced with the deadline text format you chose in your setup.
