Auto-fields for emails

Jump to: Auto-field Reference | Registrant Auto-fields

On the Emails & Marketing tab, you can enable confirmation, reminder, and follow-up emails for an event. By default, the emails include the event title, the event date and time, duration, and the event link. The system uses auto-fields - that is, placeholders or variables - to pull in these specific details. The benefit of auto-fields is that they automatically update when you make any changes to your event title or scheduling on the Event Settings tab.

Note: For attendee portals, the registration confirmation email includes the portal URL.

To customize the information in an email, go to the Email & Marketing tab, select the type of email to enable, and then select Send My Custom Message. Available auto-fields are listed below the text editor.

Auto-field Reference
