How to Use Your Custom Field in Your Email

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

Scroll down and select your Deadline Funnel custom field that you used for your API integration (we named ours 'deadlinetext'):

This will insert your custom field placeholder into your email:

When you send yourself the 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 email, the placeholder will not be replaced in a test message. You can send the email to yourself first to test the delivery.
