Add Custom Values to Emails

You can personalize your emails by adding custom values based off of the information provided by customers in forms, surveys, and appointment calendars. To add a custom value in your email, click on the + icon to on the bottom of the message box.

 

When you click on the icon, you will see a variety of custom values that you can add to your email message. Simply click on the custom value you would like to add to your email and you will see the custom value key populate in the email.

 

When you send the email, you will see the custom value populate with the information related to that custom value key you added.

You can set up your own custom values by visiting the Settings section of your CRM and clicking on Custom Values.

Be sure to cancel the scheduled message before its intended send date to prevent it from being delivered. This allows you to maintain better control over your email communications and make adjustments as needed.
