I have a task to use different salutation depending on custom field value (gender in this case), so I need this in my verification email (one sending just after filling in registration form), and my regular emails/newsletters:
[if gender = "He" then "Boom!" else "Bang!"]
It looks like I'm missing something or there is two years passed after the first requirement of conditionals (if/else statements) ?
It isn't possible in Campaign Monitor to do these kinds of conditional includes I'm afraid. We've had a couple of requests for it, but far more requests for other features, and of course we are always prioritising with those and our own plans.
I'll add your vote to our list.
You could always try adding extra fields within your database to populate this info. While it's not an 'else/if' option it does enable to reflect the right text as desired in the short term.
Two years already since couple of requests, and no progress!? Blah! Monkeys are somehow faster :p
Task is language specific: salutations in european languages depend on gender. Anyone with ideas on how to accomplish it with custom fields?
Please add my vote to this. Conditional statements would be a huge boon for the personalized content that I need to do.
I've seen a number of folks requesting this if/else functionality across the campaignmonitor.com site, yet it seems like the response is that only a couple have requested it. Well, add my vote to the list. This would help tremendously.
For me, I'd like to be able to give each of my subscribers a link to the online store that serves their country. I'm doing this in a roundabout way now (adding a new field that I edit in my subscribers CSV file with the URL matching each country), but would love for it to be integrated.
We'll add your vote too.
+1 vote for me too for this. It would be really handy to do this conditionally rather than, for example in the current project I am working on, enter long strings in custom fields for each record.
Our company would be glad, if you would implement this "if/else"-feature. We've got the same problem concerning a gender-related salutation.
That means: +1 vote for this feature.
