How do I use global variables for blueprint templates ?


I saw that there is a global variable for , but what other global variables exist? Is it possible to create your own global variables? If yes, then how to?

Thank you in advance.


Best regards,

Those aren't really global variables, they are targeted in the template specifically by the blueprint in question. They can be added in the Template editor but again, since the Blueprints are hardcoded to replace these variables with the appropriate field from the Blueprint dialog or the current date or current user, there really is no use for them outside of moving them to customize your templates. 

If you want to make your own you're best off learning how to program for Connect so you can can install your own Cloud Blueprints.
