Email field type templating

Hi all,

I’m currently building a little app and I wanted to use the Email input type for a custom action. The type lets the user enter a subject and body but also lets them use variables from the item / board in the email. I’d expect the values that I get when the action is run to have filled out the variables in the template for me before I get it, however this doesn’t seem to be the case?

Am I missing something or is this the expected behaviour?


The developer is required to parse the {} and {} tokens, get the appropriate text value of the columns, or item name, board name, group title, calling user name, etc. and then make substitutions of the tokens.
