How to Use Placeholder Text in Invitation Message Templates
Invitation templates allow you to easily send invitations to clients/prospects. Alyce gives you an opportunity to use two different forms of placeholder text for invitation templates:
- Automatic "mail merge"
- Personalized messaging prompts
For messaging samples, please visit this article.
Automatic "Mail Merge":
When composing a message template, you can use the placeholder fields shown below.
Please Note: the fields should be entered exactly as shown. When a gift invitation message is personalized, it will be replaced with the appropriate information.
I had a feeling you like [product-brand] so I hope you’ll enjoy this [product-name]. Hope all is well at [recipient-company]. Look forward to hearing from you.

Personalized Messaging Prompts:
Any of the keywords shown below, when written in all caps and placed within (parentheses), will trigger a warning if the invitation is attempted to be sent. The warning will trigger as long as the word is present in the parentheses and in all-caps, even if other words are present within the parentheses.
Example: "I wanted to send over a gift to say congratulations on the launch of (PRODUCT)."
In this example, when you go to send the invitation, there will be a warning for you to replace (PRODUCT) with the name of the product.
