How to get Custom Field variable that contains brackets



I have a custom field called `Effort (days)` .

Is it possible to grab this as a variable?

I have tried {{%Effort (days)}} , {{%Effort (Days)}} , {{%Effort}} and {{%Effort Days}} but no luck far.  I can always rename the variable, but would prefer to keep the wording as is.


many thanks

Hi Martin, welcome to the community! I've tested your case by trying to use a variable with brackets and it has worked fine. I created a rule that when I moved a card to a specific list, it makes a comment saying how many days were left by getting the information out of the CF.

To confirm, then, your first command is correct {{%Effort (days)}}. Hope this information helps!
