Personalizing a Template with Variables

You can include variables in the template to personalize your message. For example, you can reference

  • contact attributes with the prefix "contact" e.g. {{contact.firstName}}
  • custom properties with the prefix "contact.customProperties" e.g.{{contact.customProperties.subscriptionStatus}}
  • Regal properties with the "contact.rvProperties" e.g., {{contact.rvProperties.friendly_timezone}}

You can view the full list of available properties by inspecting a contact from the Audience Page.

The following handlebars can be used to format SMS content. Examples are below.

Function Description Example Input Example Output
capitalize Capitalizes the referenced property. {{capitalize contact.firstName}} rebecca --> Rebecca
default Specifies a fallback default if a referenced property doesn't exist. {{default contact.firstName "hello"}}, nice to meet you Rebecca, nice to meet you

ordinalize Ordinalizes a number. {{ordinalize 28}} 28th
