I have a list with bith names and no names, and want to achive this...
...when there is a name, and...
... when there isn't a name.
If I use [firstname,fallback=] the result will be:
The latter featuring a space between the i and the comma.
Is there any way to prevent this other than using 2 lists?
This may not be the answer you are looking for, but how about something like [firstname,fallback=there] which would keep it informal like the "Hi" and fix the formatting issue.
'Hi there' may be a bit to informal for us, unfortunately.
But a good idea :)
I also had this problem and unfortunately the only way I found to solve it is using a custom field where we set the salutation with Excel before uploading. Not nice but a workaround for the spacing issue. However I'm keen to get to know other solutions for this :)
