Use system placeholders for alert template content

The alert template can contain predefined system placeholders in the title or body of the alert. The placeholders are replaced automatically with the appropriate values when the alert is published.
System placeholders can also be added during alert publishing. Alert placeholders can only be added to alert templates.
The following Content fields support placeholders:
  • Alert title
  • Alert body
  • Response options
  • Custom text within Targeted Devices
The following list describes the system placeholders:
  • System-related: [[SystemName]], [[OrganizationName]], [[OrganizationID]],
  • Date or Time-related: [[Timezone]]
  • Publisher-related: [[OperatorFullName]], [[PublishDate]], [[PublishTime]]
