    Hi,

    Is it possible to call a custom js function and use its results from within an email template? I would like to use the return value just like using a variable {var:variablename} or field value {fin}.

    Please let me know if this is possible.

    Thank you,
    Amal Vellappillil

    I don’t understand what you mean – can’t you just return your data to a variable and use it in the email template?

    If that won’t work you must give me some more information so I can fully understand what you mean.

    Hi Alexander,

    Thank you for your reply. I understand it’s possible to create a variable and use it an email template like {var:variableName}. I was just curious if there was a way to bypass that step of defining a variable and setting the variable.

    Ex:

    
    
    var fullName = "";
    function setFullName(firstName, lastName) {
        fullName = firstName + " " + lastName;
    }
    
    function getFullName(firstName, lastName) {
        return firstName + " " + lastName;
    }

    Instead of calling the setFullName function first then using the variable name fullName in the email template, I was wondering if there was a way to just use getFullName itself in email template.

    Hope I made things clear.

    Thanks for the clarification. Unfortunately you cannot call a function directly in the email template.
