Tutorial - How to Use Dynamic Content in Emails

Blanchard Exchange allows you to add unique variables to your emails to pull in dynamic content, such as a user's email address or the name of the project. For example, the "${accesslink}" variable on all Blanchard-provided email templates generates each participant's unique Blanchard Exchange login link based on project. 

Important!: All variables you include must be encapsulated with "${}" to work properly. Example:

Correct:  ${accesslink}

Not correct: accesslink

The following variables are available for use:


${accesslink} An individual's unique link to access their course/content
