Parse [Name,fallback=] in Test Mail

    Hi Ben,

    It'd be super if parsing of [Name] tag is included in test mails. Took me ages to figure out that this was not a bug. Adding this in test mails will also confirm that the live send will parse correctly.

    Thanks

    Hi @vsm,

    The [Name,fallback=] is parsed with the "fallback" in test emails. This is the same if you use any custom field tags as well.

    For example if you used this in your email:

    Hi [Name,fallback=there]

    the test email will be parsed as:

    Hi there

    So you know the [Name] tag was converted.

    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    Ben

    Sure, but because name was never the actual name, but always the fallback, I thought it was a bug.

    Thanks
