E-mail Structure

  • You must use the following designations in the body of your message to accurately personalize the e-mail.
    • For first name: [% member:first_name default="Student" %]
    • For last name: [% member:last_name default="Name" %]
    • Example: Dear [% member:first_name default="Student" %] [% member:last_name default="Name" %],
