Template variables

General information

  • The first character of template variables is always a dollar sign ($) followed directly by a capital letter.

  • Template variables are predefined variables that can be used in specific templates. As soon as you insert a template variable into a template, it is automatically filled with the relevant content.

  • The content of template variables can not be overwritten or changed in any way. To manipulate the content, you need to assign it to a private variable.
