Adding personalisation, custom fields information and other useful *variables* to your email message

Personalisation variables

It is possible to use any e-shot field as a variable, whether it is a standard or custom field i.e. *Salutation*, *Firstname*,*Company*,*Lastname*,*Telephone*,*URN*, *Acc_No*,

If you have any concerns that your data may not be complete for the field that you wish to use, you can also this code to add a fallback i.e. *Firstname=fallback('AlternativeValue')*

An example of this would be  " Hi *Firstname=fallback('there')*, "
