  • Yes, we can use the dynamic fields / placeholders while configuring custom workflow notification.
  • Once the placeholder is added, the mapping screen shows the placeholders and we need to do the mapping.
  • PS: the standard email tokens will not work by themselves here as they work in standard EC email template. example: [[CURRENT_OWNER]] token will not display the value by itself, we need to again explicitly map this to reference in the mapping object.
