Default Variables

A quick review of the variables available as defaults through Outbase.
Variables available for use in Outbase fall into two separate categories:
  • Default variables: These variables are fields available for prospects sourced using Audience builder. Although not all prospects may have the data for every field, most should. Some will also be available for file-based audiences, if this data was mapped when importing.
  • Custom variables: These variables are only available for prospects from file-based audiences where custom fields have been mapped, allowing you to use these fields in your templates.
In this section, we will review the Default variables, use the Contents list to the right to skip to any variables you would like to understand better.
The examples below will be based on the following scenario:
James Smith, Customer Success Manager at Example Design Company, who is based in Sweden is reaching out to the following prospect:
Jane Jones, who lives in Belgium, and is CEO at Example Marketing Ltd. (www.eg-marketing.com), a Marketing and Advertising business with 11-50 employees located in France.
The email is sent on Monday 17th January 2022 at 10am.
