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':
- Scroll down the merge fields to select your 'deadlinetext' custom field:
- 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.
- NOTE: You must send the actual broadcast after the deadline has been triggered so there is an actual deadline to display. The placeholder will not be replaced in a test message. You can send the broadcast to yourself first to test the delivery.
