How to Use Markers for Dynamic Email Content - Email Spreadsheets

The Email Spreadsheets add-on supports a variety of dynamic markers for your export file names, email subject lines and the message body. These markers are enclosed in {{ double curly braces }}, and can be used to include dynamic information like date and time, spreadsheet name, and sheet id, among many others.

Markers in Filename

For example, if you are creating a workflow for mailing monthly sales reports of your company, you can specify the export file name as {{Sheet Name}} - {{Month}}, or specify {{Spreadsheet Name}} - {{Month}},{{Year}} in the subject field, and the mails will automatically reflect the current month and sheet names.
