System parameters are values about your application’s environment that are provided by Caspio in case you need them in your application.

Caspio System Parameters are listed below. For these parameters to be available in your DataPages you must have both Advanced options and Parameters enabled in your DataPage. These options are shown on the second screen of the DataPage wizard.

Parameters can be used in a variety of areas such as in HTML blocks, headers, footers, URLs, emails, field labels, etc. and usually the Insert button  signifies the availability of parameters. When you use the insert button to add a parameters, Caspio automatically places the parameter’s notation at your cursor.
