PAGES: Using Dynamic Data in Pages

What are Dynamic Data Placeholders?

Dynamic Data Placeholders (DDP) are automatically generated by the platform for every data field associated with a Contact.

When you place DDPs in a content element ( Portal Page, Announcement, etc.. ), the placeholder will output the data associated with whatever user is logged into the browser and viewing the content.

Dynamic Data Placeholders display the data associated with the logged in user. Each user will see their ONLY their own data when viewing content w/ Dynamic Data Placeholders. You can use DDPs to build dynamic dashboards and other pieces of dynamic content.

EXAMPLE: If you use a DDP for the Custom Field "Account Balance" in a Portal Page, it would look something like this.

Account Balance: {{accountBalance}}

If Client A has a $500 balance, and Client B has a $900 balance, the result will be:

When Client A logs in and views the Portal Page, the content will show: Account Balance: $500

When Client B logs in and views the Portal Page, the content will show: Account Balance: $900

Where can I find DDPs?

There are two main places you can find and copy DDPs for use in your content elements, Dynamic Data View and displayed in the appropriate content element (ex. Portal Pages)

Dynamic Data View (DDV)

In each Contacts 'Details View', you'll see the Dynamic Data button, which will launch the Dynamic Data View.

Dynamic Data View is a multi-purpose interface that lets you quickly and easily update the data associated with a particular Contact. You can re-order

In addition, you can see and click/copy the Dynamic Data Placeholder associated with each of the data fields.

Pages

You can also find all the available DDPs in the create/edit view of any Page that you're building or editing.
