Dynamic Variables

Most properties are auto-filled with default values to save you time to enter or select values for them. You can manually enter data for them as well, but we recommend you use the Insert button to insert dynamic data for properties.

Insert dynamic data for properties

When clicking the Insert button, you'll see a popup with a list of supported dynamic variables for properties. You can search for them (by title) or simply click any of them to insert into the property value input box.

Dynamic variables have the format {{ name }}, where name is the variable name. You can insert multiple dynamic variables and/or custom text in the text box for the property value.

Below is the list of the dynamic variables supported by the plugin:

Current user variables

Current user variables are similar to the author variables. The only difference is that instead of the prefix author, it uses user prefix.

For example: {{ user.display_name }} is the current user display name.

Site variables

{{ site.title }}The site title
{{ site.description }}The site description (tagline)
{{ site.url }}The site URL
