The parameter icon is available anywhere parameters can be inserted. A parameter with a corresponding data type is included in the App Parameters dropdown when it is selected as the default value of a field.

Note: Only email app parameters can be used for the TO/FROM fields of notification and acknowledgement emails.

App parameters can also be manually inserted in this format: [@app:Parameter_Name]. By default, parameters are rendered as string. Appending a formatting option to a parameter name changes its rendering and formatting.

For example, [@app:Parameter_Name@] will be formatted as Time according to the localization setting of the DataPage, provided that the parameter is a valid date/time value. The following are formatting and rendering options for parameters:

Symbol Formatting and Rendering
None String
! HTML
# Number

~ Long date
* Short date
@ Time
^ Yes/No
