Including a member first/surname in any email

(Roshni) #1

Hi!
Is there a way to include a member’s first name, surname or username in an email?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply:)

Actually I was thinking of something like this:

Suppose my member’s name is Rebecca, I want my email to look like:

"Dear Rebecca,

Thanks for…"

Is there any any way to get this done?

Thanks

The username should be
%{username}

There are other topics about customizing emails with other examples

When I add this field in the welcome email (in other words, I, being the admin, when I edit the welcome email text and add this %{username} at the beginning of the email, it gives an error to the effect that:
Body: The following interpolation keys are invalid: “username”.

What does this error mean and how to overcome it?
