Auto-fields for emails
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.
The format of an auto-field is __AUTOFIELD__ (the auto-field in ALL CAPS with two underscores before and after).
The following table explains the available auto-fields and the text they display.
|__DURATION__||For Live events. The scheduled duration of the event|
