People placeholders

People placeholders are placeholders you can use in emails to all EME people, rsvp info, attendee info etc (all things related to people).
Below are all the possible placeholders, but to avoid clashing with placeholders from events, bookings, … you can (should) use “#_PERSON” in front of all related placeholders (so #_EMAIL can be #_PERSONEMAIL etc …).

  • #_DBFIELD{xx} displays the database value of the current person property ‘xx’ (with ‘xx’ being ‘birthdate’, ‘lastname’, etc … see eme_people.php, function eme_new_person) This can replace a number of more specific placeholders below (and future placeholders can be avoided like this too)
  • #_PERSONID displays person’s ID
  • #_PERSONWPID returns the wp id of the person you’re looking at via if hat person is linked to a wordpress user, so you could then show a list of events where that person is contact for (as an example)
  • #_LASTNAME displays the last name of the respondent.
  • #_FIRSTNAME displays the first name of the respondent.
  • #_FULLNAME displays the full name of the respondent (format is set in the EME settings).
